Subject: "You Don’t Have To Be mad To Write a Book - But It Helps”

- I was born and raised in Hawarden, North Canterbury, trained as a teacher and taught both primary and secondary in Southland, Otago and Canterbury. In 1985 I switched to a job at the Christchurch Star, to develop and present its new project, Newspapers in Education. This was to promote the use of newspapers in schools as a tool in teaching/learning. This was discontinued after four years but I stayed on at the Star as a features writer. As the Star declined from a paid daily paper to a free weekly I jumped the fence to The Press, in 1993. After 21 most enjoyable years there I retired in 2015. My wife tells me I will not be adding to the total of four books that I have written. It is time to do things together, such as travel, she says. Our five children and seven grandchildren seem to agree.
