About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. I followed this by doing a Master of Arts by research graduating in 2017. Now I live to write and write to live.

  4. I think you are just entering your winter. Is that correct? So those clouds might bring heavy rains. (My ignorance of geography knows no bounds!)

    • Yes we are at the beginning of winter and being given weather that makes us believe it. This year we seem to have skipped autumn and gone straight from summer to winter. We normally get summer rain but those clouds certainly brought rain with them and wind and combined with a king tide had the makings of something nasty. Luckily now that it has almost gone it wasn’t as bad as predicted.


  5. Love the subtle blue-gray gradations of the sky and the brilliant glow from the corner.
    Be safe, Irene. Please send the extra rain our way.
