DR Gordon


I am a nomad who’s wandered the globe for many a year now. My passport says I’m Australian and I think of Newcastle and Melbourne, Australia, as equal homes. I’ recently relocated to Germany seeking the Berlin artist’s scene.
I enjoy snowboarding, hiking, exploring new places, and of course, reading and writing. I’ve been writing since the third grade and haven’t stopped since. Personally I read a lot of Poe, Lovecraft, Blackwood and Le Fanu. It doesn’t take a scholar to see their influences throughout my work.
I completed my Bachelor of Arts as an English Literature major, Philosophy minor, at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch New Zealand. I also started a Masters of Creative writing in Melbourne, but put it aside after gaining a diploma because, funnily enough, it was taking up too much of my writing time.

    What a beautiful little book that explains what is a touchy subject for many in a considerate and accessible way. Having come from a family with two adopted siblings and a number of foster brothers and sisters I know the 'why am I here' questions are things that are constantly going to spring up for an adopted child. I see this delightful little story as a sensitive way to approach the subject for the young adopted child. It is far to both the child and their biological mother and allows a child room to feel love and appreciation for both their adopted parents and their biological mothers. The illustrations are also lovely and inviting which helps you engage in the sweet storyline even more. I'd recommend this to any adoptive parents as a great bedtime story. One which would help their adopted child engage with and, most importantly, feel good about what can be a very confusing thing for them to come to terms with.
