Profile Information

G'day from WA,

I have a fairly wide range of literary tastes ranging from poetry throught to murder mysteries and military thrillers, oh and of course sci fi.

My personal interests lie in social justice, history and environmental issues.

Hope you enjoy my little mental meanderings.

Most of my poetry is not meant to rhyme mainly because I like the ramblings of free verse, but also because life does not rhyme, it is full of stutters, stops and pauses.


Stories continuing, may be a bit slower due to study commitments.

Alexander Solzhenitsyn (1970 Nobel Prize Address)

Let us not forget that violence does not and cannot flourish byitself; it is inevitably intertwined with lying. Between them there is the closest, most profound and natural bond; nothing screens violence except lies, and the only way lies can hold out is by violence. Whoever has once announced violence as his method must inevitably choose lies as his principle. The simple act of a courageous man is not to take part, not to support lies! Let the lie come into the world, even dominate the wolrd, but not through me.
