I dropped out of my first degree. After 12 years, which included a marriage and kids, I went back to study and became in time, a radio producer and presenter, a practitioner of public relations and (following several years of part-time study) a nursery owner/operator. I retired. But, buried deep inside me a little voice kept niggling away, could I write? Beset with all the usual self-doubts and fears, I realised there was only one way to find out. Creative Writing at Swinburne. Now into the second year of my degree, here is my first venture into print. Enjoy!
