Welcome to my Home Page
Australia is now my home following a childhood in Yorkshire which revolved around horses. I studied in Wales and have taught Science at High Schools and Horse Management at TAFE colleges (Technical and Further Education) in NSW.
I now teach a Writing Your Life course at the local chapter of the University of the Third Age (U3A).
I have developed a love of history but was told by a history academic that, because I was science trained, I wouldn’t know how to research or write history… what a perfect challenge to throw at a lass from Yorkshire!
My research and writing interests include:
Military History, in particular the 2/20 Battalion and 8th Division in Singapore and Malaya in the Second World War
Air Transport Auxiliary (ATA), the Ferry Pilots in WWII
Australian Colonial History
My books are
“Pounding Along to Singapore, a history of the 2/20 Battalion AIF“, available from me via this web site
“From Baron to Battler, the story of Dr CUD Schrader of Walcha, 1860-1900“
“The Schrader Letters, 1871-1896” available from <www.smashword.com/books/view/109893>
