Who am I?
I’m the author of over a dozen critically acclaimed books of fiction and non fiction, and many essays and stories in a range of publications. I’ve been living a life of many relocations and new directions. Terrifying instability gives way to magical serendipity; a productive period in one place breaks apart and a new environment must be found.
The one constant is that it is a writer’s life; the writing is my vocation, the centre and meaning of my life.
What is Local Time Publishing?
I created the Local Time Publishing project to make available paper editions of my back list titles, and added to those a memoir, a new novel, and a prose collection. While my latest novel is to be published by an established publisher, Transit Lounge, which also published a new edition of my 1992 novel The Edge of Bali in 2012, still LTP is necessary to keep all my other titles available globally in affordable and beautifully designed paper books. E-book editions are also made available.
Why Patreon?
I set up this Patreon page at a time where more massive relocations loomed in my near future. Since then, I have returned to live in Australia, the country of my citizenship. But Local Time Publishing needs support: patrons' contributions mean that I can afford to send out copies of the books for review, and create press releases and other forms of information. These books desire their potential readers and I must do the work to unite them.

“I want to support you on Patreon because….”
Here is what some friends/readers/supporters say
“I want to support you on Patreon because the world is a better place because of your fierce intelligent insights. You must continue and you must have independence. For all of us.” Julie Brumlik
“I want to support you on Patreon because 3/4 of the people I know would never have the courage to lead a peripatetic life like yours. Remember to pat yourself on your back regularly.” Philip Gorman
“I want to support you on Patreon because you are a subversive thinker, one who defies the stereotypical and sentimental, be it in life or in the genre-shifting fluidity of your writing.” Loveday Woods
Feel free to add your own completion of "I want to support you on Patreon because...". I can use your name, initials, or made-up initials to quote you.
Please do consider being one of my supporters on Patreon.
Even a small amount means a lot in this kind of life. And small amounts add up. It might be just the cost of that coffee or cocktail we’d have this month if we could meet. Or a dinner, if you could. Or a week’s rent, if you’re able to spare it. Or even just what you’d give a busker on the street.
Think of it this way
For $1 a month you have access to my patrons-only blog. And I am going to write one.
Thank You and Rewards
I thank you in the most sincere and grateful way there is. How can I thank you?
It is usual for creators on Patreon to offer rewards to patrons, and I am happy to do so, while realising some of the usual rewards from writers (more text!) might seem more like additional calls on your overloaded attention. I welcome your suggestions for rewards.
Patron-only content
This will include a place where patrons can ask questions and I will answer them. 
More about my work
If you’re looking at this page you probably already know me and my work and already are interested in being a supporter. If you need to know more, please check out my website (which includes a Newsblog) and my “Local Time Publishing” LTP Facebook page. The most recent one  will always be linked at the Newsblog. You can sign up for that newsletter here: subscribe . I created my Local Time Publishing project to re-issue POD back list and new titles; titles can be seen here .

Know more
Patrons will have access to patrons-only content where I would answer questions and post drafts.
If you prefer to make a one-time donation:
Either:
Patreon says: The best way for a patron to support a creator with a one-time pledge is to become a patron, and simply delete your pledge after your been successfully charged or after the first of the month. You'll know when that happens because you'll receive an email confirmation right after the 1st of the month or when you've been charged that says your pledge has successfully processed.
Or
Pay it directly into my PayPal account [email protected]
Or ask me for my Australian bank account details
