Gail M Shell
Gail M Shell was born in Melbourne, Victoria, before moving to Geelong where she married. She and her husband have three sons. Over ten years ago at the request of her family, she wrote and account of her father's experiences as an Australian soldier during WW11 and of his ordeals as a prisoner of war. She assembled many original documents and letters in her possession and in the course of her writing, her father's story expanded. The letters from her father to her mother, diary entries and photos took on a life of their own. Consequently, she also documented her mother's story - her parallel journey back home as Australia underwent revolutionary cultural and economic changes. Their story emerged as a full length novel. Gail was awarded a monetary grant from a fund raising group of the MS Society to help her realise her dreams. This grant enabled her to complete a rewrite of the manuscript under the guidance of a professional assessor, mentor and editor.
