    SPLITTING

    This story was born at Adelaide Writers' Week, 1998. I was there  to attend the launch of a poetry collection and accidentally ended up in a lecture on The Lure of Mathematics .

    Splitting, in which a woman steps out of her life and into one she likes better, was broadcast on Radio 5UV South Australia, in September 1999. As my first published fiction, I retain fond feelings for the heroine, Bridget Tucker and her private revulsion for pickled octopus

    AN EDWARDIAN CHILDHOOD

    "It was the consistency she loved about her Spode, the reliability. If you looked after it you could hand it intact to your grandchildren. Break a piece and you could replace it with another exactly the same. Unlike marriage, Spode lasted."

    An Edwardian Childhood was broadcast on Radio 5UV in May 2000.
