Stephen is a gifted storyteller … his stories are crafted to change your world view of your limitless capabilities within a world wide context. His books are a testament to a great gift to inspire, uplift and motivate.

Stephens writing 'career' began in July 2008 after a particularly challenging set of life experiences, when he had a notion to write a book. Not having written anything before, his initial thought was … “you’ve got to be kidding yourself”.

Undeterred by self doubts, he set a goal to have the book finished by December 2008 … It was finished by January 2009 and published later that same year. That was
The Book of Testaments: A practical guide for spiritual realisation.

In 2011 his second book,
The Music of the Soul: A pathway to a rich and fulfilling life that was published. It was in ‘Music’ that the story of Alfred and his family of ducks started … purely from a picture in Stephen's mind of two ducks sitting on a pond talking to one another, with him listening to their dialogue.

His third book,
Letters Across Time: a journey of enlightenment was published in 2013, and his fourth, The Power and the Possible: a teenagers traverse of the world in 2015. His next novels, Mean Paradise, and The Pivot Point are due for publication in 2018.

Stephen never thought, given his initial reluctance, that his bold notion to write would lead to his array of books and and screenplays. As Stephen says, “You never know what you are capable of until you unleash your potential and passion.”

That and, "No matter what anybody else says, never, ever give up your dream.”

Additionally, Stephen has also produced four feature film screenplays, based on the inspiration from his novels.

  • A Meaningful Life
  • Mean Paradise
  • The Power and the Possible
  • The Pivot Point

In addition to all the above, Stephen enjoys a family life with partner Camilla and three teenage sons.
