Where I Live
Immigrated to Australia with my "ten pound pom" family in the early fifties spending my boyhood in Victoria. Family moved to South Australia at the beginning of my teenager-hood. Followed all the sci-fi TV series e.g Star Trek, Lost in Space, Dr Who, Time Tunnel. And then in my adulthood followed all the Sci-fi movies, Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, Star Gate, etc. Have always loved English Literature all through my school years and started writing romantic poetry, graduating to my first non-fiction book in 2003 on separation and divorce. A close friend of mine seemed to recognise that I had the talent to write novels and that I should be entertaining readers with the sci-fi genre that I love. He read my new book "Sentinels of Tzurac" and enjoyed it so much that he is eager to read my sequels in the trilogy. That has given me the self-confidence to continue writing full time which I am now doing after recently leaving the public service after 40 years.
