This "neomasculinity" crap, which offends me to the very core, can lead nowhere good.

It's not the same old offensive philosophy.
It's a brand new offensive philosophy!

So yesterday I could have died...   ...assuming I identified the cone shell I found at Florence Bay on Magnetic Island correctly.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conus_geographus

At first all I saw was a bit of what looked like brown glass poking up out of the sand.  i thought it might have been a beer bottle, so I dug at it with my bare toes.  I saw the snail "foot" retreat inside the shell, so I picked it up and carried it to where Superwife and The Wonderkids were building sandcastles.  I warned them that though I wasn't sure if it was venomous or not, I knew some were, so if they saw anything poke out of it, not to touch it.

After we'd all had a good look, I scooped it up in a toy bucket and took it out into the shallows near some rocks and released it.  It was only when I got home and looked it up that the four inch long, by 2.5 inch wide snail I found was likely to be a Geography Cone - one of the most deadly in these parts.  Lucky, wot?

G’ay to all my online friends!  As some of you may know, I gave the keyboard a bit of a rest for a while, but it managed to suck me back in a few weeks back.   Heh, we’ve all been there, right?  Anyway, I’m now “this far” (holds finger and thumb a…

Now I don't feel so bad about that copy of "The Ship Who Sang" I 'borrowed' back in '86.

Next time you bring back a library book a few days past its due date, know that your fine could have been a lot worse.

Call me a killjoy, but I just can’t get behind NaNoWriMo this year.  In fact, I’m having trouble stomaching at the online rev-ups for every damned thing.  If people spent a mere fraction of their time trying to rally everyone to their causes, actually on…

It's about time.  FB's getting a "dislike" button.

http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-34264624
Facebook is to add a 'dislike' button to its social network, founder Mark Zuckerberg says.

Work
Occupation
If only being a dork could be a profession... By day, I work in my family business. By night, oh who am I kidding? I've got two young kids, and that means sleep's a rare thing. I write when I can, and nobody else is looking.
Employment
  • Gilmour's Pty Ltd.
    Chief cook and bottle washer
    It's not glamorous, and there's no bigass German car in my driveway, but I'm not in a psych ward or jail, so that's a plus.
Story
Tagline
Fantasy writer. Bi-phasic rapid cycler. Bad influence. Nerd.
Introduction
Fantasy Writer. Book & film nerd. Unrepentant carnivore.  Dog person.  I can get cranky.

I'm an indy author and proud of it, hence the whole Amazon KDP Select thing, but when it comes to exposure, I have no shame!  If it'll get me sales or publicity, (and perhaps maybe the attention of a traditional publisher who'll take me on,) I'll do just about anything.

If you're one of my contacts, either through email, social media or even the day-job, you can expect the occasional email from me if I have any big news like when I'm doing a free promo or releasing a new story.

Now if that rubs you up the wrong way, and I know it might, you really shouldn't put your email address in your public profile.

If you do get an email from me when you'd rather not, don't get all huffy.  Just reply with a simple "Shut up already!  I've got enough going on in my own life without you filling up my inbox with your self-promotional garbage!", and I'll remove you from my address book.

Really.  I'm not into spamming people.  I get enough of it of my own.

I also do the odd review occasionally, but it's usually on a you-review-mine, I'll-review-yours basis.  I can also proof/beta read/assess manuscripts. POA.

Other random pieces and bits...

I don't fold - I scrunch.  I don't like broad (lima) beans.  If curry isn't hot enough to make me sweat, it's not hot enough.  It's never too early for a hamburger.

Whenever possible, my backpack contains a compass, torch (that's a flashlight to you non-Aussies) and a Swiss army knife.

'I like their old stuff better than their new stuff' can be applied to just about every band's album I've ever purchased.

You know those 3D posters that are all squiggles until you focus your eyes away from them to see the image?  I've never been able to see the image.

Oh, one more thing.  If you've made it to the bottom of this, then you've just earned yourself a gold star.  Well done.  You've proved you can pay attention.  

Now stop messing about online and go do some work.  Better yet, go check out my books.  Who knows, you might find something you like!

Or, you could stalk me on other social media.  The links are all there.  I don't bite, so long as you don't post nudie rudie stuff on my timeline, or tag me in those damned annoying ads for sunglasses.
