Joined 6 years ago from South Wales, UK




I'm in my early 40's and am a mum to four grown up daughters. I have written on many subjects over the past few decades, under various different pen names mostly. Now I write predominaetly under the name billabongbob.

I have experience in many areas of life, from nursing to internet based businesses, distributions management to hospitality. I have been self employed for many years now and have an eclectic collection of career paths enforce.

I enjoy a challenge and usually have several on the go at any one time. Spending time with my family and friends is something I do as often as I can. My other interests include: cooking, books, movies, cross stitch, gardening, travel and socialising.
