At school I enjoyed writing from an early age and often had articles published in school magazines but never dreamed of becoming an author. I attended Caulfield Institute of Technology, Victoria, where I studied Art and Design, majoring in Ceramic Art.
(Now Monash University)
After leaving college I returned to Wangaratta, where I set up my own pottery business specializing in fantasy pottery, in which I still dabble. I married and had two beautiful daughters, Errin and Tegan. I have since divorced, and still live in the North East.
