I grew up in Tennessee in the US, and now live in southeastern Australia. For work, I am a translator and editor, but these days I am trying to make a go of writing. Back in 2012, I created my online journal/blog, "Beyond Language's Reach", on Blogger, and wrote entries there fairly regularly for a while, but then Stuff happened and I slacked off. Recently, I've come to the realization of just how short life is, so have resolved to get back into the journal-writing as well as some other projects that have fallen by the wayside.
When not working or writing, I like to read, zone out with the guitar or flute, and spend time with my lovely wife exploring the Blue Mountains, going for walks, watching shows and movies, sipping red wine or beer or whisky, and even throwing the odd dart or two.
Welcome to my website! And thank you for putting up with all this blather :-) If you would like to read more, feel free to head over to my blog (recently migrated to a new site) and have a look, or check out a couple of short stories I have published on Amazon: That One Pretty Thing (dark sci-fi-ish -- but fair warning; stress on the word "dark"!) and The Pinnacle (fantasy-ish).
