I commenced my working life as a country school teacher then moved into a corporate career which took me from Melbourne to Perth and Sydney. I’ve had a lifelong passion for writing and wrote the first words of my novels over thirty years ago. After a busy career and raising a family of four, I’ve found time in my retirement to fulfill my long-held ambition to see my work in print.

I have published two novels Friend and Philosopher and Whistler Street, and a memoir No Way to Behave at a Funeral. I am working on other manuscripts and on developing a new career in writing. All my work has been dedicated to the memory of my cherished wife Maris, whose continuing support and encouragement gave me the confidence to persistent with my ambitions.

    thank you Noel for your beautiful poem about your wife. I want to read more of your writing. No Way to Behave at a Funeral what a courageous title. I will keep following your blog. More poems please. You might be interested in my latest post Athena and the Anzacs and what happened to my grandfather. Let me know what you think.

    Hello Noel,

    I read your book several years ago and it moved me deeply.

    Just reminded of you tonight and your amazing book about grief, after reading the blog of a mother grieving the loss of a baby of 20 months.
    How are you? I hope you are well and with grandchildren all around, and still sharing your wisdom.

    Peace to you,

    Annette Hill
