I am a Canadian born Aussie, having emigrated with my wife to North Queensland in 1975. Since then, we've raised a son and have both been working in the state high school system. My areas have been English, History and Geography while hers has been Science. I write because I'm hooked on the music of words. I also sculpt, in wood and stone, because things that can be made with, and held in, the hands are good for the soul.
