G'day Mates,

I am an 'Aussie' that has lived in Michigan, USA since 2001. The winter months are great for writing :)
The summer months are great for motor bike riding.
When not writing or riding, my time is spent playing a variety of PC games, usually, RTS or MMO's. :) Am starting to get to old and slow for first person shooters. The younguns have faster reflexes :(
I could rave on for a long time, but will restrain myself! See you on a forum or two :)

Write because there is a story in you that must come out. Also, if a person enjoys writing, then they should keep writing. Early works will be rough! Accept that fact, and do not be afraid to 'fix' an old book if it needs it.
These are your books, do them your way.(less)
