A little about me, first off Paul. Gran is a pen name, one of many.
My first non fiction eBook was a photo / commentary of each photo kind of eBook. I have since then diverted into other areas. Here on Smashwords, I have uploaded a short eBook that deals with one of the most important issues facing parents. What name should they give their child! Yes, baby names. I will add other baby related work later on, and other area's of writing. Stay tuned!
A little about the outside world me. I am a fully trained teacher. I undertook my degree in South Australia, Australia. I have taught primary (elementary) and secondary students in both public and private schools. My major was in Health and Physical Education and I minored in Social Sciences.
I also enjoy photography and I have had a little success in selling my photo's online in the past.
Oh and I am a cat person. Just thought I'd throw that in for good measure. We cat people have to stick together.

Describe your desk
Desk? I am a fluid writer. I write wherever seems comfortable. Mostly I am on the couch, with the laptop resting in my lap, tapping away on the key's.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing back in 2000. I started writing a novel who's protagonist went all over the world to stop the bad guy's. He worked for the N.I.O, a crack intelligence agency who hunted down sex criminals. He was a tortured soul who came from a wealthy family who had become wealthy because of the beef and wool industry. He wanted something different and went into a job that helped others.
Sadly I lost that story when the computer I had at the time crashed. So sad. But looking back on it now. Who would want to read that? Seriously!
Teaching is a noble occupation. In society we are told that teachers are looked up to. WRONG! As a supply teacher, you are called upon to back fill for an absent teacher. Students take advantage and go crazy; your sanity takes daily brutal hits and at the end of the day all you have is a lovely pay cheque. Who would want this job? Crazy people who are still keen to make a difference.
Crazy Names for Girls and Boys: A short List of Crazy Baby Names to help Daring Parents is a short eBook filled with a few crazy baby names for both girls and boys.
Look through the list, discuss with your significant other or not and maybe you too will have a child with a name that will make Grandma Josie shout out, “You named that child what!”
