How long have I been writing? I began at 15 after I lost my first love. It became prolific for a while until I felt as though I had exhausted all my 'poet's inspiration' and I left it to pursue other interests. Then it returned when I turned 30 and I've been writing poetry for the past twenty or so years. I grew up with and love the works of Banjo Patterson and C.J. Dennis. I lived in Gippsland in the south of eastern Australia for many years and when I relocated to the Sunshine Coast I seem to have been able to derive a whole bunch of stuff to write about. I love life. I love poetry.
