About the Author

Raised in Rockhampton in a bygone era of innocence and, in retrospect, stunning ignorance, Ross experienced a childhood cocooned in Catholicity making the path to seminary and possible priesthood obvious, even inexorable. Ross entered with faith and left with none. Studies in social work, economics and sociology followed, with twelve years work in child protection and two years cross cultural community work in remote villages of Papua New Guinea. Thirty years of University lecturing in social work, human rights and political economy paralleled a deep commitment to human rights and social justice, senior voluntary positions with Amnesty International and frequent visits to places of despair. A constant was, and remains his love of travel, across the smells, sounds, sights and cultures of some seventy countries. An equal constant is his wonderment at the oddness of his human species, its presumptions of superiority, its obsession with eternal living, its constructions of myth and magic, its substitution of nonsense for reason. Ross has recently discovered his own Aboriginal heritage and is now a confirmed, active, inquisitive member of the Iman Nation in search of his personal and cultural history. Ross has preserved sanity by defying existing cosmological models, having Sharon as his world centre, circled by four children, their partners, and the delight of four starlight type grandchildren living just moment to moment.


"The delight in this book is the premise it may well be true...what a wonderful piece of writing by a new and exciting author in Australia's growing range of talents..." Terry, Indiebook reviewer
