I live in Yamba, Australia; a small coastal town surrounded by sandy beaches.  Reading and Writing are my passion.

I now run my own Pet business, run a website and facebook pages.  I have published a few short stories on an eMagazine, and some in a Custom Newspaper.  I also write articles or blog posts on demand.  I have taught MS Software applications, ran restaurants, ran a Customer Service Unit, worked at a Film Studio . .

Then there are the Forums I follow and contribute to.  I am an avid reader, but now it is no longer paper books and newspapers.  Digital is at hand, and I read plenty each day.  My interests are many and varied.

My two passions in life? Finding things out, learning, going to new places and sharing the knowledge, the experiences.  This last year I have learnt much, but there is so much more to learn.

This is a great adventure.

        Why has my hub been demoted ?

        10 months ago
