Who is Mike Cavanagh?

Well, I was born in 1953, so into my sixties now, which still astounds me. My mum always said one day I’d look back and think, ‘Where did all the time go?’ Clever mum. I’m married – twenty years with Jules – and live in Bateman’s Bay, NSW, Australia. Three adult children, mostly left home, and two black cats complete the extended menagerie.

I grew up in Wollongong before moving to the southern highlands, then Canberra and Bateman’s Bay. Throw in New Zealand, South Australia and Tasmania for various whiles and that’s about it. Playing guitar and writing music are my main passions, along with writing, and as Jules will only too readily tell you, playing too many role-playing games on PC. I’ve also been intermittently researching rock-wallabies for over three decades, but don’t ask me about them unless you have a spare hour or three! 😀 .
