I am a 75-year-old teacher-librarian working in a secondary school in Sydney, Australia. I retrained in teacher-librarianship when I was 70, after a long career as a classroom English teacher. I have been a registered nurse, journalist, co-owner of a mixed farm, academic and teacher. I have had a fair amount of my writing published -- short stories and poetry in literary journals from 1974-1990 -- and in the 1990s two novels, now out of print. I am passionate about reading, classical music, opera and travel.
It has only recently, oddly, that I am addicted to flying in aeroplanes and that I am equally addicted to travel. Only a few 'bucket list' travel experiences left for me now: Iceland, Patagonia and Antarctica. Haven't visited Africa and might not do so. Only interested in Botswana.
