"I'm interested in life without technology and the philosophy of emerging cultures, which I explore within a post apocalyptic civilization based in New Zealand - 500 years after the world ends. I've often wondered what the dark age scribes were thinking when they read about the lost technologies of the ancient world. Oppression. Lawlessness. Cults and cultures. Nomadics. Slavery. When the remnants of science can be confused with cosmic intervention. When the earth is wild and treacherous. I incorporate elements of Jewish and Plains Indian mythology. And, of course, the genetic engineers developed a strain of coffee that makes people immortal." - CEB 2014
