Born and raised in Tasmania, Australia's island state, I spent most of my early years blissfully running free on a sheep farm. While the farm house didn't have a television or a telephone it did have a room lined with floor to ceiling books. Already possessing a vivid imagination I didn't need any further encouragement to spend all my spare time cocooned in this room. So began a life long love of the written word and the wonderful world they can create.
Although my career has been in the pharmaceutical industry I never forgot that wonderous room and the many classic books it contained. Nor did I forget the dream, inspired by those classic authors, of one day holding my own published book in my hand. Sometimes dreams really do come true.
