Welcome to my Version of the world!
After thirty years of working with the unemployed, coping with threats, tears and broken lives (and these were only from fellow staff), I decided it was time to escape—to escape into the world of imagination.
I loved writing stories when I was a child, taking out a fresh, blank piece of paper and a sharp pencil. Then the excitement of getting my first—and only—typewriter.
Now, in this wonderful modern age of computers and the internet, the additional thrill of being able to share my stories around the world. Self-publishing is both a wonderful tool and an addiction. The wonder when I sold my first book to someone in Brazil.
I began writing my first novel, Regency Masquerade when I was at university, but put it aside, unfinished. Now completed, the book is available as an ebook and a paperback for those of us who still like to hold an actual copy in their hands.
Since then, I have moved on to short stories. My first collection, Beach Apples is a mixture of stories with an Australian theme.
My second, Star Clash, is all science fiction stories, a genre I’ve always loved to read and now enjoy writing.
And now my latest, Splinters of Glass, is more science fiction, though this time the theme is strong women.
