Introduction David Morisset is my pen name. I spent my childhood in the semi-rural environment of Riverstone, which was then a meatworks town on Sydney’s western fringe. After graduating from the Australian National University in Canberra, I roamed the world, first as a diplomat, and later as an economist. Although I have spent most of my life in Australia, I have also lived in Iran and Tanzania. My work as an economist involved extensive travel throughout Asia, North America, Western Europe and Oceania. Over recent years I have published several novels as well as collections of short stories and poems.
