About the Author
I’m one of those people who finds it difficult to settle down. Getting a degree in
astrophysics didn’t help. I worked for a while as a research astronomer then the
bottom fell out of the jobs market for people with my qualifications. With a family to
support, I searched around and found a job in Parliament House (Canberra). That
was short-lived and I moved to North Queensland where I worked in public relations
and journalism. The Great Barrier Reef was just offshore and it wasn’t long before I
got involved in the diving industry. That led to other tourist operations. My final
venture was to set up a backbacker hostel. I’m now retired and have lots of time for
travel and writing. Mike Dixon, January 2016
