The novel The Iris Tattoo was completed with support from Norman Bilbrough through the New Zealand Society of Authors mentorship scheme.

Years ago, an aunt urged Nod to take up writing. On thanking the aunt for her perceptive insight, Nod was told, "Oh, it wasn't to do with your writing. You were born on the same date as William Shakespeare. so I felt you ought to be a writer too."
