About Me

OWEN TREVOR SMITH (known as Trevor)

I now live on the Kapiti Coast of the North Island of beautiful New Zealand but I have lived and worked for several years in Australia, England, Germany and Switzerland.

I grew up in the small seaside village of Paekakariki, only 10km from where I now live, graduated with degrees in Psychology and Education from Victoria University of Wellington, and work as a software engineer when I’m not writing.

I share my home with two dogs (Harry and Jacko) and three guitars (not named). I’ve had my share of adventure. Three times I’ve taken a year off and travelled through different parts of the world and I’ve sailed the Atlantic from England to Brazil in my 41-foot ketch ‘Adastra’.

I have written novels, poems (that rhyme!), short fiction in diverse genres (westerns, science fiction, war, crime, adventure) and also children’s stories and a play (which has been performed 🙂 ).

A collection of my short stories Seven Roads to Travel was published in 2015 and an epic poem The Day Bonny Blue Raced for the Cup was also published in 2015.

My first novel LINDISFARNE: Fury of the Northmen was published in 2018.

The Pharaoh of Venice (2019) is my second novel and the first book in the Tales of a Minor God series.
