I am an author from
the East Coast of Australia who only had the opportunity
to travel overseas for the first time in 2005. Who
knows, I probably flew over Tracy Island at some stage
during my travels!
I first discovered
Thunderbirds as a child growing up in the late sixties and
always remember being extremely miffed that my mother made me
leave for Saturday morning dancing class halfway through every

friends, who risk life and limb to help others is something I
I am truly honoured for
my work to appear on this site.
My motto - "The world
needs more of International Rescue."
