I grew up in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, in a family with two brothers and a sister. Although life has been hard with our family cancer issues, we have enjoyed what life has brought us.
I live with my partner, Stu and his brother Simon and between us we have three cats, one cockateil and upteen fish, both pond and aquarium.
I retired in January to do what I've always wanted to do – write. Stu and I had planned to go on the road this year but life has gotten in the way and it may be next year before we get there. But we will be on the road and I will add painting to my writing so that I can best describe our beautiful country.
