He has a lovely wife, two rambunctious dogs with no respect for personal space, especially on the sofa or bed, twenty-something koi, a flock of itinerate galahs who visit regularly, and a never-comprehensive-enough rock n' roll record collection.


  1. Hi Shane, I thought you might like to know that “I Will Find You” is to be made into a film, here in WA. It will expose more of the tragedy of child migration.
    Kindest regards, John
