I was born in Liverpool, UK and spent much of my early life, both during and after WWII in North Wales. After a spell in an elite British Army Regiment and then agricultural college, my wife and I and our first daughter came to Western Australia in 1967.
We have spent our life in agriculture from wheat and sheep farming to managing a one million acre cattle station in the far north of this State.
After more than 20 years in international agribusiness, which took me all over the world, we retired a few years ago, partly due to ill health (all better now thank you!)
We have two daughters and three grandchildren.
We live in Albany in Western Australia, which is about as far south as one can go.
This is a beautiful part of the world, put 'Albany Western Australia' into your search engine and you will, I am sure agree.
The sequel to 'Hearts of Stone', 'Flight to Australia' is now on Smashwords.
