Born in 1943 to a working class family with middle class aspirations, I began writing stories while at school, finally venturing into novels when I retired from teaching in 1997. The result was a series of mystery/thriller novels set in Australia and featuring two unorthodox investigators who work for the fictional Strange & Obscure Cases (SOC) Unit, an autonomous offshoot of ASIO. When Evolved Publishing, an American company, showed enthusiasm for my stories, I was contracted to produce the first three novels in the series. Negotiations for a further three novels are in the works. I am encouraged by positive feedback, at which time the words flow freely and usually reflect my bizarre sense of reality and weird humour. When my muse's ego is bruised, I bide my time, reworking old short stories into Sci-Fi novels and waiting for new ideas to evolve. The longest time I've gone without writing anything new has been eighteen months, but when the drought finally broke, the words flowed thick and fast. Three times married with four children, I live in Morwell, Victoria, Australia.
