Back when I was a wee lad, my older brother took me to see 2001: A Space Odyssey…well did that make an impression! Basically Ive been a Space Nut and SF fan ever since. In my teens I drew, painted and wrote about other worlds and possible futures. In between then and now, life got in the way…and a certain eye disorder called Choroideremia. My eyesight being what it is, I can no longer paint, but I can still write. So long story short, after many years, here I am, still nuts about Space and SF and writing again, all but forgetting I used to do this stuff when I was a lad….Life is a circle…or so they say. If you would like to know more about my particular “Brand” of vision impairment and my journey with it, check out a little story I wrote called “Roll of the Dice” which appeared in the final issue of Soundtracks, produced by Guide Dogs NSW/ACT.
