I was born Geoffrey Michael Daniel on the 29th of March 1969 (Aries for those into Star Signs) in
Perth, Western Australia. In 1991 at the age of twenty two, I coached a Dudley Park Under Sixteens
football side. It was here where I gained some good experience dealing with teenagers, but also got a
lot of satisfaction from seeing the various improvements made by them along the way.
My mother’s name is Mary Emily Daniel, and father who passed away in 2005 at the age of fi fty six
from Motor Neurone Disease- Brian James Daniel.
Brian was an English Teacher all his working life, who tried to improve almost any student while
under his care.
This is something I like doing, although never having been a school teacher myself.
As a child we moved fairly regularly from one ( GEHA) Government house to another around the
state of Western Australia, which I have to say didn’t like that much.
My hobby and almost obsession at the time was playing Australian Rules Football ( Aussie Rules )
of which I started off quite averagely but with time and plenty of hard work, become quite good and
continued to play until a young adult.
I completed Year Twelve, but due to not taking it all that seriously unfortunately, just passed, which
I have to say has helped in some instances along the line.
During my adult life I have done a variety of different jobs and have enjoyed meeting many
However, I have spent most of my working life in the Mining Industry processing Base Metals like
Gold, Nickel and so on.
After my Marriage collapse a number of years ago and leaving almost everything to my ex-wife and
two boy’s ( Ryan 12 and Thomas 9 ) now, I continue to see them down in Bunbury on a regular basis
since leaving them.
I now live here in Mandurah where I have spent the majority of my life.
Having worked at the Mandurah City Council for a few years repairing roads, I fi nd I enjoy the
lifestyle it has to offer.
Obviously though, writing is now my biggest passion and has been since both the split up and father
dying( even though I wasn’t really close to him).
So hopefully people reading this series will enjoy what I bring to them now.
