I’m an author who lives and works in the Dandenong Ranges, on the eastern edge of Melbourne Australia.
I take one day at a time but occasionally I’m attacked by several days at once.
My amazing wife and I have lived in The Hills for forty years.
My favourite colour is green and so is my favourite car.
I started my working life as a Primary School Teacher in the early 1970s.
Since then I have been a stained glass craftsman, furniture restorer, restorer of Player Pianos and music rolls, author (nine books so far, another on the way), photographer, basketball trading card manufacturer, basketball coach, basketball player, basketball referee, part-time shop assistant, newspaper columnist, homeschool dad, husband, father, grandfather, and a few other bits and pieces, and not in this order.
I’m fascinated by people, but I prefer the company of dogs.
I’m not frightened of dying, but sometimes life scares the hell out of me.
I think that birds are cool but I don’t believe that they spend any time thinking about me, even though I give them lots of stale bread, and the occasional pizza crust........ ungrateful bastards!

Have you read Terry Barca yet? If you have, I'm sure you'll agree with my review. If not, then I'd scurry along to the shopping cart while these works are affordable, because once the publishers get hold of his work you'll be paying premium prices for a fix of his writing. Terry Barca writes about the people we know - or think we know. His characters are the people next door, the lady in the milk bar or that fellow you passed in the street; ordinary people capable of extraordinary behaviour once Terry allows his remarkable powers of observation to blend with his creative writer's imagination. He uses the vernacular of thought to tell his stories, a dialect we can easily relate to as the drama unfolds. His opening lines are always to the point, setting an interest you just have to follow through the unfolding action and denouement, to the, often irony laden, last line. This collection is entertaining, thought provoking and sometimes close to home. His style is refreshingly unique and like a seasoned actor, he owns his own writerly stage.
