I write because I enjoy writing - the effort required and the satisfaction when a piece is finished to the best of my ability. I am an avid reader with a wide taste in literature. .
I realize that I am a creature of my background so I am bound to write from an Australian, and particularly Tasmanian, perspective which can be somewhat insular.
I am a retired high school teacher of business studies. I loved teaching and have recently resumed in a small way leading a small writing group in a local U3A. Do you have U3A (University of the Third Age) in USA?
