Author bio

Australian writer married to a beautiful human. I supplement my income as a writer by working as a Registered Nurse, semi-retired, and a rural dweller. Being a health professional I am often given the honour of human stories which I often seek permission to use for an idea, deidentifying the person and situation of course. I write as that person and put myself into character, I hope I am successful in showing their story and journey. I am trying the art of emotional memory to empathise with my characters. My writing is often based on truth or from life experience, from observation and verbal story sharing. I have always keep a journal and use that as story ideas along the way. Experimenting with different POVs and characters very unlike me, but using emotional memory or emotional truth in the words.
