Hi, my name is Dave and I was a full time truck driver but I am now retired and a part time writer. I’m a patriotic Aussie and am passionate about Early Australian History.
How did I become so interested in early Australian history?
Long story but the short version is that I had the story line for a book in my head and not seeing myself as a writer I tried to ignore it but it wouldn’t go away so I had no choice but to write it down. Sound familiar, I bet there are a lot of people going through the same thing.
Anyway, one thing led to another and I found myself going to the library to research the background for the book. Because the story was based in Sydney (previously Port Jackson) in 1803 I found myself unearthing all this early Australian history that I knew nothing about. Certainly none of it was taught at my school and probably not many others either, since the education department must follow a certain curriculum.
