About Keith McTaggart

Keith taught science for a long time and wrote some science stuff. While writing Flushing Dunnies for Melbourne Water and Science Teachers Association of Victoria, he discovered from Chris Simpson and Paul Saddler that there had once been a shanty town on Collingwood Flat, full of refugees from the gold fields at Ballaarat. This happened in what is often called the most liveable city in the world these days. So it had to be rough, smelly, tracks rutted in summer, mud in winter, sewage emptied in streets and of course a hotbed of crime with some crims just a bit more powerful and controlling than others. It screamed of novel material and here it is - Collingwood Flat. Also available on Smashwords is a novel for [about] eleven year old boys and girls - a slightly old-fashioned adventure with sailing themes and brave kids.
Sailing? Yes, Keith loves it and the profile photo shows a freezing old codger working in winter on his boat, Elixir, a 10 metre yacht of great age. Chris [not the one mentioned above] likes the sunny part of sailing and Rosie the cat thinks humans need to go sailing and leave her in the warmth with food, just returning home to let her chase rabbits for entertainment and the occasional chewy [disgusting] meal.
