I am a New Zealand writer and artist. My first novel Behind the Hood is a piece of realism and is the opening book in a series. It takes a look at the harsher side of life in New Zealand and is based on a town that I used to live in.

Life on the rough side of New Zealand. The domino effect started by one violent act.

Behind the Hood follows the lives of a group of people living in a South Auckland neighbourhood, where gangs, violence, drugs, and abuse are a way of life. Told from multiple viewpoints, this novel details the collapse of a small community following the attack on a teenage girl. After Tama Harris, a gang leader, assaults Nike Daniel’s sister he goes on the run. In his need for revenge, Nike goes after him, but is unaware that his actions will endanger more lives.
