My name is John Irvine. I was born in Lower Hutt, New Zealand, on October 14th, 1940.

I lived in Australia for 28 years, drifting about like a cryptococcus spore on the breeze, and am now resident in Colville, New Zealand, on the Coromandel Peninsula with my poet/writer wife Maureen. Here there is room to let my dark side (and two three gorgeous greyhounds) out to play.

Thank you for your time and patience.
