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.

    Dogs have almost the same sense of happiness as we do…don’t they? I guess it’s the chewing I cannot agree with…Wonderful take on this challenge!

  2. You made my day, Irene – I love the photos of your beautiful dogs and all their adventures. They give so much and all they ask back is some kibble and a tummy rub. All else is frosting – well, maybe more kibble, if you’re a dog.

    Your dogs are well loved, Irene! I learned a great new phrase — tummy scrubble. We call it a belly rub! Pictures of happiness.
