I live in Sydney, on the Northern Beaches and enjoy longs walks on the beach and a dip in the ocean in warm weather. I’m active volunteer in my local community library and I get great pleasure from reading and discussing the latest choice with my book club members over lunch or a glass of wine. My writing groups give me inspiration and motivation to keep persevering with my writing even when the inner devil voice is throwing negative thoughts at me. I’m currently working on a historical novel set in Sydney and Canada during WWII based around the life of my Uncle. I’ve been fortunate to have inherited his diary from 1941-1943 which details his service in the RAAF at this time. It’s like opening a time capsule. I also like writing short stories especially flash fiction and I’ve had several stories published in Positive Words Magazine and been shortlisted in various short story competitions as well as winning the Fellowship of Australia, Forestville branch short story competition.
