In this book, I sit down with one of the world’s most advanced language models, ChatGPT, for an in-depth and thought-provoking interview. Through a series of questions posed to ChatGPT, readers will gain a deeper understanding of the mindset of AI and its many potential uses. I ask ChatGPT questions about its inner workings and about the benefits and potential dangers of AI.
This book offers a unique and captivating perspective on the rapidly advancing field of Artificial Intelligence. Join me as I delve into the artificial mind of ChatGPT and explore the possibilities and challenges of this rapidly-evolving technology.
The interview also delves into the capabilities and limitations of AI and explores the ways in which it can be used to improve our lives. From natural language processing and machine learning to predictive analytics and decision-making, the book provides a comprehensive look at the many ways in which AI is shaping our world.
At the same time, the book explores the potential downsides of AI, such as the risk of bias and the potential loss of jobs. Questions also cover the ethical concerns that arise when we entrust machines with decisions that have significant consequences for people’s lives.
An Interview with ChatGPT is a must-read for anyone who is curious about the future of AI and its impact on society. It offers an insightful and nuanced look at one of the most important technological developments of our time, and is a useful introduction for anyone who wants to understand the implications of this rapidly-evolving field.

Doing research when writing can be great fun. In this case I was exploring a beach on the rugged west coast of New Zealand’s South Island looking for the jade pebbles that can sometimes be found in the recently disturbed shingle along the high tide mark (where the stones meet the sand). This isolated area is awesome. At times when walking the beach here, you feel you’re the only person on the planet. I hope you get a chance to read my new thriller Above High Tide that is set in this amazing part of the world.
Investigator, Sam McKee, would rather enjoy himself fossicking for jade and artefacts on the rugged West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island than worry about the stranger he’s seen digging a grave-like hole on the river flats and staring at a young girl in the local village.
Lydia would rather be living with someone other than Mr G, but she doesn’t have a safe exit strategy and Mr G isn’t the sort of man a girl says no to.
Mr G wants it all. His brothels make him plenty of money, but that’s not enough. His property empire, held together with blackmail and extortion, is under threat, and he will do whatever it takes to keep it.
Sam will need all his skills as an investigator, diplomat, and gambler if he’s to satisfy a violent egomaniac, especially one who’s out for blood. Can he save the life of someone who’s just made a stupid mistake without risking his own, or will he end up buried Above High Tide?
Here are some photographs I took while researching my new novel Above High Tide due out in April 2013. Above High Tide is a thriller set predominantly on the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand.
As a writer I find having visual references a great help. I’m lucky to have such an amazing landscape to work with. The rugged West Coast never ceases to inspire.
