I live on a subtropical island in southern Moreton Bay about an hour’s journey from Brisbane, Australia.
I was born in Australia, in Lithgow up in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney, but my mum whipped me off to New Zealand when I was four (because she couldn’t stand her mother-in-law) and Nelson became my home town. Still is.
With my wife, I returned to Australia to live when I was seventy-seven. That makes me an Australian by geography and a New Zealander by culture, a fearsome state of confusion.
I have been a geologist, a teacher, a professional actor and now I come back to the love that was always there, writing. That’s my daily pleasure and I hope you enjoy it too.
