Welcome to My Publishing Portal

The past is my lesson. The present is my gift. The future is my motivation.

 

 

 

When I sit down to write a short story or a book, I do not say to myself, ‘I am going to produce a work of art.’ I write because there is some truth that I want to expose and some fact to which I want to draw attention to.

 

No one can tell my story, so I tell it myself.

No one can write my story, so I write it myself

 

One thing that helps, is to give myself permission to write badly. I tell myself that I’m going to do my five or more pages no matter what and that I can always tear them up the following morning if I want. I’ll have lost nothing.

 

I prefer to write in the morning where my ideas wake me but I always carry my pen-less note pad with me, my phone.

 

I got my "Diploma of Freelance Journalism" in July 1998 at the Australian College of Journalism.

  

 Writing for me is the answer to everything.

 

It is now my streaming reason for living. To note, to pin down, to build up, to create, to be astonished at nothing, to cherish the oddities, to let nothing go down the drain, to make something and to make a great flower out of life, even if it’s a cactus.
