Introduction for Scootermac
I'm a married father of two kids, one a teen and one a five year old. My family currently lives in New Zealand, although most of the past 20 years have been spent in Australia. Up until recently I was a high school teacher (English and History) but like too many of us these days, I lost the passion for it. For the past couple of years I've been a stay at home dad and have been writing online when time permits, chiefly at Helium (where I was an editor) and at Bubblews. I've also had a couple of stories published in professional magazines.
My interests include movies and comic books, playing poker and supporting a couple of football teams. My favourite food is KFC and my favourite drink is beer - which may explain why I need to get more exercise.
Wishing us all good fortune in building the reputation and popularity of this site. It's good to see that a respect for quality writing and interaction has been established from the outset. All the best.
