The author

In his writings Greg Blaze draws on his experiences of working and travelling the world for inspiration in his stories. His strong connection with the ocean through his decades of surfing lifestyle has heightened his love for the natural world and God’s creation.

His work as a civil engineer in the humanitarian sphere has opened his eyes to the plight of humanity in the developing world, which is so different to his own experiences from the land of plenty. He has lived as a Christian in a third world Muslim country and has observed the best and worst of both these religions and the impact that it has on their societies.

Blaze is encouraged by people who “have a go”, those who are willing to contribute to their communities in whatever way they can, to help the living. He is inspired by Jesus the Christ of the Bible. He was born and bred in the Steel City of Newcastle and currently resides on the mid north coast.
