Shining Light

My First Book

Shining Light is my first book – a collection of my photographs from Japan with haiku poetry. The sample copies all sold out which is why this is my only copy left, with scrawls and all. The Japanese translation has recently been completed which is so exciting. I am now waiting for the graphic designer to work his magic before an end-of-year release hopefully on Amazon. The book is basically a love story: aren’t they all? Stay tuned…

Growing up I played a variety of instruments particularly piano, clarinet, guitar and drums. When I finished school, I wanted to be a music therapist, but I was told I would first have to be a classical performer which I had no desire to do. I then spent at least 10 years in crappy rock and roll bands playing bass guitar, singing and writing which I absolutely loved. Finally in 1997 I started writing classical music where I found a new voice – particularly revelling in writing music for theatre, film and television.
I structure my work using stories and libretti that I usually write myself: sometimes it’s just a quote, other times it’s a life story.
