Hi, I’m Greta van der Rol. Welcome to my worlds.
Ever since I was a very little girl you would have found me with my nose in a book. While the other kids messed about with dolls and things, I’d rather talk to the people between the pages. Yes, I had a torch so I could read in bed without mum knowing. Many years later, I’ve had a variety of jobs, including a brief, forgettable stint at teaching. That history degree came in handy when I fell in love with computers and programming, and entered the burgeoning world of IT. But the urge to write has always been there, and that’s what I do now I’ve ‘retired’.
I live with my husband not far from the beach in Queensland, Australia. When I’m not writing I take photographs of nature and animals, and now and then I do some cooking.
Come on in and look around. You’ll find a bunch of topics that caught my fancy in the category list down the right side, and there are some obvious menu items just under the header. Enjoy yourself. Thanks for coming – and don’t forget to say hello.
