I spent a total of six years living in Indonesia (five in Java, one in Bali) and now live in Perth, Western Australia. I’m married to a Balinese and have one son. My work history includes being a welfare worker, researcher and teacher.
My education includes a social science degree and a grad. dip. in education. Areas of study have included modern history and politics for China, Japan, Australia and Indonesia. In the past, I’ve taught English-as-second-language, history and economics; currently, I teach business subjects.
In the past, I wrote numerous freelance articles, mainly on social welfare and Indonesian issues, printed in a range of publications.
My main interests now include reading (novels, history, anything about Indonesia), writing (creative and expository) and music (classical, jazz, 30s & 40s music).
Shadow Chase, my novel set in Java, is available as Kindle on Amazon, and as paperback for purchase online in Asia, Australia & NZ . Check out its website at http://www.shadow-chase.com.
