Bernard Doove

Biography

I was born and bred in a suburb of Melbourne, Australia. I've always been a voracious reader, but I rarely wrote anything until I discovered the anthropomorphic (furry) fandom. Nowadays I am involved in many aspects of that fandom, including participating in conventions both locally and internationally. I have an orange tabby named Romulus who tries to make it difficult for me to write, but he purrs a lot while doing so, so I forgive him.
