So here is the overview from birth to present.
Born England, moved around heaps. Immigrated to Australia with family, moved around heaps. Did school, did the teenage years (some of them not well). This is where my writing probably saved me and others. cliche? yep but it's true. Moved to USA, married into the Navy, had a kid,moved back to OZ, moved around heaps. Industrial accident, spine and other body parts severely damaged. Months of rehab, years of chronic pain, eased slightly these days by only slightly less morphine than required to knock out an elephant. Again writing saved my sanity and my life. mmm jury still out on the sanity.... Suffered tragic loss. mad at God, the universe, all, decided life was to short. Dusted off my dreams, wrote five novels, got three songs produced(on i Tunes), entered into the world of script/screenwriting.
Day job that pays the mortgage while working to get my writing/songs discovered. You ready for this? Service and Programs Officer, Juvenile Maximum Security Correctional Centre. Want to know more?
I want to change that day job in to WRITER. I love speed as in motorsports, soccer, movies, friends and would like to travel into space.
If you read this far THANK YOU.
