I served as an engineering officer in the RAAF for 28 years. For about half of that time I worked in headquarters (ie, the government Department of Defence) in Canberra, in a variety of planning-related positions.
During a sabbatical, I was associated with ANU’s Centre for Resource and Environmental Studies (now absorbed into The Fenner School of Environment and Society).
Since January 2008, I have been a full-time fiction writer.
I have the following tertiary qualifications:
- PhD (thesis: dealing with uncertainty in long-range planning)
- Masters Degree in Information Science
- Bachelors Degree in Engineering (Aeronautical)
- Diploma of Government (Management)
I have completed two writing courses via the ACT Writers Centre.
