I have recently become an Old Aged Pensioner... quite a laugh, really!

I have worked at numerous things here in New Zealand, and in Australia and Papua New Guinea. Selling cars, cooking, crewing yachts, farming, managing tourist resorts...

My first collection of poetry, Man of Stone, was published by the wonderful Zenith folks in September this year. Sales are not illuminating, but satisfyine, and it is early days yet.

I also write short stories, and have had stories published in Auckland's Magazine, Carnival of Wicked Writers USA (horror) and a number of anthologies.

I was fortunate enough to have a poem selected for inclusion in a truly wonderful publication called Illuminations. This large, hardcovered, full colour volume was publiahed in New York and is distributed world wide.
