Articles on my website

Facebookyoutubemail

Here are a selection of articles I have written (and continue to write).

I’ve been writing for years and have had articles published in a number of magazines and anthologies. I’ve also written a couple of history books for children which are still in use in schools across Australia.

Where possible I have added links to cross-reference music to the articles.
