so why did I create HORIZON?..
They say that we all have at least one book in us.
For many years, during my time as an artist for MARVEL COMICS and other publishers and while working in TV and Games I have had a story rattling around in my head that just won't go away. It has cropped up many times in many different forms for more than twenty years. The other major interest in my life is 'personal development' and for some time I have been committed to find a way of using my experience as a comic book creator to produce something that by the very nature of its content will not only entertain but also inspire people. And ultimately make a difference in their lives. The themes of my various book project ideas have always been the same even if the characters and story have changed. A number of times I have started it, mostly in collaboration with other writers. It never seemed to quite come together until finally somebody asked me why I didn't write it myself. That was the answer. Do it myself. I had always believed and been led to believe that I am not a writer. Artist, yes but writer, no. But why not? As I began to put together the framework and the plot and breathe life into the characters the story almost began to tell itself.
And here we are. A dream come true.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
