First Post... the post that hurts the most...

The following blog is designed to be somewhat of a chronicle of my adventures in writing, and maybe a few rants as well. Whilst I intend to be posting fairly regularly (time will tell however), I'd like to keep things fairly frequent. Arguably, it's an excuse for vanity publishing, but I guess thems the breaks.

Now, about the title of the blog. South Latitude 47° 9', West Longitude 126° 43' is the location of R'lyeh, H.P. Lovecraft's nightmare corpse-city and home to perhaps his most famous creation, Cthulhu. For some light reading refer to his short story "Call of Cthulhu" or check it out in Wikipedia.

If you refer to its location on Google Maps, you'll see that it's the middle of freakin' nowhere, roughly in between South America and New Zealand, smack bang in the middle of the South Pacific Ocean. Now that's remote.

And now about me - I'm a psychologist, working in Queensland, doing some private work and also working within the Queensland Government. I specialise within areas of child and adolescent psychology, and also do some mentoring as well. My interests include home renovation, writing (horro and science fiction typically), web design, theatre, science, cooking and art. In terms of the arts I love the lowbrow styles and also have an interest in maker culture.
