    Are You Published?:
    Writing my first book on the long term effects of prenatal alcohol exposure. There are others to follow and are mainly about my experiences in life. Not sure if I am a novel writer yet but I do enjoy getting carried away with creating worlds, the lives of other characters and am fascinated by the process of imagination.

    I've been writing a journal of experiences since 1998 and after learning of my FASD; Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorder in 2009, the other projects came to an abrupt halt. That said they have universal themes and are unlikely to go out of fashion.

    Worked in hospitality from 1985 to 1997 and from this I inherited a wealth of information about the world of others.

    Probably a bit too compassionate if that is possible. All comes down to how this damn disorder affects my thinking. I'm a fairly shy person so I may post a few questions first and read posts before directly communicating straight away. This is to ensure I don't make a fool of myself, in my eyes, as I have learnt from many other screw up's before this.

    I should probably add that as a consequence of p.a.e at times my words/language may not seem age appropriate. As I learn more about my disorder from apperception the more I realize how much my age perception was affected.

    To describe it in more layman terms it is like being in an adult body with an adult's mind some of the time and being conscious of thinking as a late teen or early 20's and in more negative emotive moments I am very aware my mind goes right back to a small child around the age of ten or thereabouts. So apologies if at times my questions, answers or comments seem somewhat "different".

    anthropology, epistemology, existentialism, epigenetics, history, philosophy, psychology, comparative psychology, anthropomorphism, brain science, parapsychology, physics, linguistics, semantics, dialectology, meteorology, etymology; strong interest in the development of language and how this will affect future humanity. It changes our perceptions and inevitably our world.
    And dare I say it politics. Here in Australia I am a supporter not yet a member of the Labor Party and the Greens; not sure of their counterparts in other countries. I cannot support other more self-focused and ego driven parties such as the Liberal Party in Australia. If you are going to be in politics, I believe you should be in it for the good of all not just a few. There is no place for a class system in this day and age. With the way things are at this moment in history we simply cannot afford to segregate and separate ourselves from the greater good.
