Stephen describes himself as the 'accidental author' - an Australian-born TV News & Sports producer who has swapped the TV Studio for a writer's garret overlooking the Tamaki Estuary in Auckland.

His debut novel 'Tugga's Mob' has been short-listed in the 2020 Ngaio Marsh Award for Best First Crime Novel.

The idea for Tugga's Mob was inspired by three seasons working as a tour guide on double decker buses travelling across Europe in the 1980s.

Then, most of it was written while touring Europe with his wife in a seven metre motorhome they named Kwozzimoto.
