Back in the eighties when I should have been studying, I ran a magazine covering London's pirate radio stations and their battles to stay on the air and go legal. At amfm.org.uk you can read the stories of the 25 most important unlicensed stations of the eighties like Kiss-FM, Radio Jackie and DBC, listen to an audio history of London pirate radio from 1975-1990 and dig into all eighteen issues of TX Magazine.

A radio documentary on the AIDS crisis and its impact on the “gay paradise” of Fire Island throughout the 1980s. The 25-minute piece airs this week on KCRW’s “UnFictional” program, in commemoration of World AIDS Day 2013. My Web site has a companion page introducing the guests and featuring additional content not heard in the broadcast version. [more inside]
My debut novel (well, long novella, actually) has been published by Champagne Books! It's a time travel SF romance called A QUESTION OF TIME. It's about an SF author who finds herself transported to her high school days in the late 1980s, where she realizes she has a chance to save a favorite teacher from death. [more inside]
I like to gather and post pictures of cities worldwide taken between 1960 and 2000.
Most Australians have heard of 1980s artist and fashion designer Ken Done. Most Australians haven't heard of 80s fashion collector Jackie Ruddock or the Melbourne based social enterprise The Social Studio. So, Good Fashion for Good is a project i've been working on with my partner, for 365 days she will be wearing Ken Done's 80's fashion and along the way encouraging people to do *good fashion for good*. If that doesn't sound like a big deal, first check out www.goodfashionforgood.com for some examples of Ken Done's finest fashion from the 1980s. Its going to be a colourful year for us.
