About Me
I am a retired builder, most of my working life in the less populated areas of my State, plus a few years in Papua New Guinea and some time in New Zealand. My writing comes from life, its ups and downs, and stresses. Fortunately there were happy times to balance things so I didn't fall off my world. Today, I am content; I accept what comes along and make the best of it. I try to be positive at all times; mostly that works fine. My writing is a reflection of life as I live it.
