INFORMATION
I was born In England and lived in Britain until I was 13 years old, thereby having very strong memories of my time there. I have lived in Australia since 1960, but return to Britain every chance I get. I do write about Australia too, but My memories are so strong of Britain that it is probably my main subject. I am a Vietnam Veteran,. having spent seven years in The Royal Australian Navy, two of which I spent in Submarines. I have PTSD, and found that writing poetry was very therapeutic. I did not write my first poem until I was about 55. I was fairly reticent about writing since I never got past second year high school, but I have always loved reading and I think that is what encouraged me to try my hand.
