I have a Bachelor of Arts with a double major in literature (James Cook University of North Queensland). In that degree I obtained minors in psychology, modern history and economics.
I also have a Graduate Diploma of Library Science in which my studies included management and communications (Queensland University of Queensland).
My Tastes In Books
I am interested in any fiction depicting 'real life' because it makes me think about what I do and how I live.
I particularly like teenage fiction as I am interested in the 'turning of age' experience.
I am also particularly interested in gay literature: both 'turning of age' stories and those centered around adults.
For a complete change of perspective my little home library also has some science fiction, fantasy and horror in it. I like those kinds of fiction because they help me escape from the hard rigors of life for a while, and also they encourage a little heroism in me (a trait I sadly lack).
I also enjoy crime/spy/mystery novels to add a bit of excitement and intrigue to a quite life.
For non-fiction I love serious psychology and also a little philosophy, Eastern religion and politics.
