One day... I decided to write a book. Far from the madness of computer coding, I struck out on a road of wild aliens and exotic planets. 
 
Tumbling out of my head like a hapless troop of skydivers, characters of surprising life and breath fell upon the page.
Who would have thought that feline humanoids and sulpher breathing insectoids would become best mates. The imagination is a wonderous and sometimes surprisingly cruel thing.
 
I hope the budding young writers amonug us, let their minds run free. I believe the world desperately needs your character heros more than ever.
 
 
“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...” 
 
― Dr. Seuss, Oh, The Places You'll Go!
  
I was born in one of the lesser-known capitals called Canberra. The ultra-planned city was a haven for politicians and public servants alike. Its singularly most impressive achievement to a 12-year-old, was the man-made lake in the dead center of the city that was ringed by a lattice of bike trails. Afternoons and weekends were filled with trips to the lake, bike riding and visits to our national monuments.
 
The final years of my schooling were relatively obscure, with the exception of the spinal injury that set my life on a totally different track. My dreams and aspirations would now be tempered by physical logistics and general social nonconformity. My family was a large part of my readjustment into normal society after stints of hospitalisation. I have nothing but praise for their efforts and continued support.


My working life had been just that, 'a working life'. It was punctuated with trips abroad and adjusting to life as an adult with a disability. One thing I have learned is that life is never static. Change is as inevitable as a changing tide. New and exciting challenges await those bold enough to catch it on with two hands.

So now, I take a leap of faith to ride the next wave into writing … I hope you have as much fun reading my books as I do writing them.
 
See You There ...
