I live in northern New South Wales, after over thirty years of living in Western Australia. I’m close to the Border Ranges, which provide a dark, moody and often mist-shrouded backdrop to the view from my place, across green rippling cane fields. I have a PhD and a Masters degree in life writing, and edit and mentor other writers, both academic and creative. I also help other people write their life stories, and I review books for a couple of national newspapers. I am writing a couple of memoirs, and a biography, in between editing jobs. I started a local book group, and am a member of a writer’s group.
