I was born in Glasgow, Scotland and emigrated to Queensland, Australia in 1969, aged twenty-four. Five years later, I married a Brisbanite and we spent more than fifteen years in isolated communities, from Bamaga in Far North Queensland to finally coming home to Brisbane in 1989.
I wrote my first story at about ten years of age, but binned it a few years later. There were giants and pixies, and trees that talked. Life may have turned out rather differently if I'd heard of J R R Tolkien at that age.
They say cats have nine lives, so there are nine stories about Aunt Sally's adventures already written, but only the first two have been published.
