New Release

(Released New Years Day, 2022, Blackheath Publishing)

My debut fiction novel has just been released! Check out the book trailer here, or buy it in an eBook or paperback format today! Kindle Unlimited member? Then you can read it for free!

A breath taking, explosive adventure thriller, Upload will take you on an edge-of-your-seat journey between science & faith, life & death, and a battle for the political soul of a nation. Join Luke Templeton in his epic race against time to stop the freewheeling rise of shadowy sci tech giant Levanter from waging ultimate destruction in this life, and beyond. 

From the stunning mountain peaks of Lake Saffira, through the wild seas of the Bering Strait and across the vast ice plains of Alaska, Upload  is a genre-crossing adventure thriller that will truly keep you guessing until the very last line.

Praise & Reviews

‘Zehndorfer's Charismatic Leadership is the first book of its kind that sought to deconstruct the role of charismatic leaders in fuelling the fires of market fragility and the cyclical boom-and-bust nature of the financial markets. A must read for any scholar or practitioner wishing to gain further insight into the powerful role of charisma in the origination and perpetuation of financial markets crises.’ - Thomas Pang, CEO, Keppel Telecommunications & Transportation Limited, Singapore

Review of Charisma

'Zehndorfer’s Leadership: A Critical Introduction will be required reading for my undergraduate students, graduate students, and consulting clients. Readers seeking to better understand the fascinating concept on leadership will be treated to comprehensive overview of this topic, from the trait theory of leadership contemporary concepts like emotional intelligence and authentic leadership.
