What is something that you think you would like to write a book about?

    Kikkuli - a horseman who lived around 1345 BCE, who betrayed his country (Mitannia) to the Hittites.

    Holley - the 13th son of an impoverished Salvation Army father, who became a composer, trumpet player and conductor.

    My parents' lives and how they met in a bohemian artists' colony, and the consequences of their choices for each other.

    The Permaculture Institute - how it started with great green ideals but failed due to social & psychological dysfunction.

    The Hermes Group - a secretive cult that takes over a village - how its practices are discovered and how it eventually dies out with a whimper.

    A crime sleuthing mystery set in the endurance riding scene of the Aussie bush, with obscenely wealthy Arabs trying to buy the best horses.

    A modern day King Lear story dealing with the problems of dementia, greedy adult children and the aged care system.

    (There are four others in the pipeline. At 63, I have no idea whether I'll ever get them all written.)

    I don't have the patience to marshal the attention it would take to write a book.

    I'm not sure I could even write a short story.

    Someday I'm going to write
    The story of my life
    I'll tell about the night we met
    And how my heart can't forget
    The way you smiled at me
