Karl loves storytelling. From a young age, when not watching James Bond films, Karl would binge read comics. The British anthology 2000Ad became a staple diet of his comic addiction.
Having to grow up, he luckily landed a job working in advertising as a copywriter. While writing the occasional award winning ad, Karl also dabbled in short films. One of his films, Signs, hit a sweet spot with people and has been viewed over 10 million times on YouTube.
Karl’s passion for storytelling led him down an unlikely path: professional wrestling. As his alter ego, Curt Chaos, he became the New Zealand Heavyweight Champion and toured the country defending his title for over a year.
Then one summer day, Karl had a crazy idea (he seems to have lots of them). He wanted to write a series of books. But to make it a little different, he wanted to make the villain the central character. To create Justin Truth.
Another of his crazy ideas was to write the first three books in the series, Corporate Truth, Criminal Truth and Fractured Truth, at the same time. To learn how to write better, Karl went back to University and earned a master’s in creative writing. He then thought that since he grew up in New Zealand and Justin Truth is based in America, he should spend some time in the States. So, Karl threw a backpack over his shoulder, grabbed his laptop and travelled America for a year while finishing the books.
In 2018, he launched the first three Justin Truth novels and followed them up with a novella. He is currently working on more Justin Truth tales to add to the series, as well as creating other original novels.
