You're Ovaryacting is a short non-fiction piece - an extended anecdote I guess. It started as a facebook status then grew into something bigger. The theme is sexism in the workplace, an issue that has received much media attention in Australia in recent months. I found myself incredibly angry at the treatment of our first ever female Prime Minister Julia Gillard and decided to write about my own experiences. Thanks for allowing me the chance to share my story!
The saying in life is really true that a persons life can change overnight! Mine did in 2010 when I woke up with a swollen leg, that afternoon I was in an emergency room in Hackensack NJ. The Ultra sound showed 3 blood clots! The one in my leg was called Deep Vein Thrombosis and the other two were by both lungs called Pulmonary Embolisim. Between 2 hospital stays, 3 leg operations, and a stay in physical rehab I was in a bed for 30 days. I always say Be Thankful For What You Have!

My book ‘An Expat’s Experiences of Living in Turkey’ is based on the many and varied experiences that have occurred during the past 25 years spent living in Turkey. It starts with how as an Englishman I came to arrive here in 1989 and why within a very short space of time my late wife and I decided to buy a plot of land and have a house built in a quite village down on the Mediterranean Coast. What followed from our decision to uproot and move to Turkey is a mixture of joy, happiness, distress, frustration, grief and finishing with extreme happiness, with my now living in a completely new environment and enjoying a second life here in Turkey. Scattered throughout the book are various tips and suggestions on a variety of things that can help those thinking of either just buying a holiday home here, of moving to live here permanently.

Communication is the more spiritual part of our book. It and other readings' scattered throughout help to inspire the soul and bring a feeling of continuity and belief in self. Welcome to our family home. Both in a spiritual sense and material time and place. Life in Rowlands Gill from around 1900 is just at the beginning of a newly established farming and mining village. Nestled deep within the beautiful Derwent Valley, across the river from Gibside Estates a 12th century residence once belonging to the Earls of Strathmore and the old queen mothers' family. A long walk from our roots in Scotland and Ireland with much sadness and loss through the 1st World War. Mixed in with spiritual writings which others' have asked me to set down and which are deeply inspirational and educational. The book is an on going project which has already taken many compassionate years to set down and is a much loved project for us all.
