It's been a long time so I thought I'd reintroduce myself.
I wish I could tell you that I'm a writer. Truth is I'm a communications guy for the department of Health. It's a job with a lot of critics. Last year I had a massive meltdown, sold everything and disappeared with my family. We travelled around the world, china, north and south america, and all around europe. We holed-up in an medieval presbytery in the village of Pont Saint Esprit, near Avignon. I found a sunny nook, out of the wind on a hidden porch and guess what... all my old characters started saying hello, kind of creeping out of the warm stone, popping their heads over the terracotta tiles, emerging dusty and cobwebbed from the pigeon-nests. They were telling me stories. It was a nice feeling.

So I'm back now, in Tasmania, and writing, hoping to make a contribution to this community.

Characters are never forgotten, they're just biding time until you are ready.
