A Memoir of Plays, Films, Musicals, Commentaries, and Books
This is a memoir from the point of view of a working-class boy from East Fremantle, in Western Australia who, in his formative and teenage years, had a love of the theatre and performing. Later he went on to script and produce films. Then there are eleven original musicals involving both writing and performance, some under very 'odd' circumstances. Along the journey, he developed skills as a sporting commentator. Finally, in retirement, he embarked on writing thirteen novels, three 'factional' biographies, a memoir, and a revised edition of his family's genealogy.
How this all came about, and the significant people who shared the journey, is documented, and the back stories behind the various endeavours are detailed. There are 'lost years', some triumphs and disasters, and a few very sad times, but above all, it is a reminiscence about a life lived creatively.
