Welcome to my portfolio. I'm Bob, from Australia . My writing comes from life, the trials and tribulations, the hurt, the trauma and the pain, all balanced by those happy times, so I don't fall off my world. Share it with me as I write about it all. I hope you enjoy the journey as much as I do. I am forever grateful to ~ Sisco ~ Back! for sponsoring and mentoring, me as a Rising Star. It is an honour I shall treasure and value. Kind regards - Bob:
