Who is Jack?

Jack is one of the writing names of Paul Garrety.

He lives with his delightful (and talented) wife Annie, on the Blackall Ranges overlooking the Qld's Sunshine Coast (Australia) and now writes full time. He teaches creative writing to U3A members at the University of Sunshine Coast and also works as a story consultant for authors and writers of all genres. 


Jack(Paul) is also an accredited yoga teacher and registered yoga therapist with Yoga Australia specialising in clients over 60 years, working with them one-on-one in their homes.

He loves, in no particular order: bushwalking, his family, meditation, dogs and, when in the mood, getting out two of the very few instruments that can be played without knowing how - the symphonic gong and American Indian flute.
