Stephen is an Australian-born writer, TV producer, kayaker and traveller who now plots crime fiction from his garret overlooking the Tamaki River in Auckland.
His debut novel Tugga’s Mob was inspired by three seasons working as a tour guide on double decker buses around Europe in the ‘80s. It was a finalist in the 2020 Ngaio Marsh Awards for Best First Novel.
Boxed is the second book to feature the Melbourne Spotlight television crew. The amateur sleuths encounter more bodies and drama in the third novel which follows their motorhome adventures in New Zealand.
