Don’t worry about the world ending today…
as it’s already tomorrow in scenic and tranquil ‘little’ New Zealand


“I wish you well on a rainy day
I wish you rainbows to brighten your day
To feel your quiet moments with a special kind of warmth
to remind you that happiness can happen
when you least expect it.

I wish you rainbows to make you laugh…

Life lessons

Being a writer is one of the best ways to make a living.

If and only if you are serious with the craft.

I have been a ghostwriter for a year now and I don’t regret having made that decision.

If you have some great skills in writing and you wanna make some money off of it then here are some ideas for you to make your dream a reality.


Ghostwriters are people hired to produce content, but the credit goes to the person who hired them.

Most of the content produced by ghostwriters are autobiographies, scripts and magazine articles.

So if you need an autobiography written for you, you can contact me onmy email

My funeral instructions (as “inspired/led” – totally impulsively from my old friend, John’s* Facebook page)

* “the world’s third worst photographer”, so he calls himself

I will most likely be cremated, so I have specified that I have a special jacket which I must wear to the funeral pyre. each pocket is chock-a-block with crackers, catherine wheels, rockets (stick removed) and those square ‘jobbies’ that shoot showers of stars and bangs into the sky. The Makaraka crematorium here in “Sleepy Hollow”, “little” New Zealand will rock for twenty minutes. #

“Totally crackers”!
