My first job was as the sole teacher in a school of 32 students in outback South Australia. ‘I was the cleaner, the teacher, the caretaker, you name it.’ I taught Aboriginal children and was fascinated by their knowledge and stories of the Australian bush. Many of my characters and situations are from my real-life experiences.

When I retired from being a school Principal, I decided a life of leisure was not for me.  Instead, I decided to write a novel.  The result was a young adult book, ‘Forest Spirit’.

My wife, Wendy. and myself have returned from a book tour on the mainland where I chatted with groups of students about writing techniques.  I also gave classes an insight into the publishing process.

'Forest Shadows' was launched in March this year, followed by 'Forest Secrets' in October.

All three books in the 'Forest' trilogy are available in bookstores and libraries both in Australia and overseas either as a set or separately.
