I am very fortunate that I have ancestors, or ancients, as I like to call them, Why? I'll tell ya', it is a well known fact that if your parents do not have children, there is a good chance you won't either.
My family history goes back to the 1600s where the first recorded (name) was given permission to bear arms, and I thought we were an 'armless lot. I did have some suspicion that being legless ran in the family from time to time.
My#1 fan, Rainee, is a researcher in ancestry, and with this lovely lady's great assistance I was able to find many of my past kin, and some of my present kin, which give me the right to be kin to kinfolk, ifn' ya' know what I mean.
My family history in South Australia, at the time of early settlement, and the information that was recorded, and detected by Rainee, is a very strong part of the 3rd book, "From Whence They Came" in the story of 'Tiger Williams.'
I look foward to the publication of the sequel, now in the hands of Fiona Gatt, my publisher, and the third book has been started.
It is with the greatest of joy, for both of us, that Fiona has sorted out a problem with the parent publisher, and Fiona and I have gone partnership together to get these stories out to you; no middle man.
Fiona has the expertise that I lack in editing, a task equal to writing the stories of length in the first place. So, folks, I have nothing but good vibes about my writing now, instead of the overhanging doom that existed previously.
