Through travel, she realised the desperate need to give back and help those around her.

Is a writer, poet and philosopher. The biggest influences on his writing are dreams, Kafka, Borges and Dali. His stories, poems and non-fiction articles have been published in various e-zines and print publications. Boris has appeared a number of times on the radio, including Australian national radio, performing his poems and stories and discussing the meaning of his work He says: "Writing for me is a spiritual activity of the highest degree. Writing gives me the conduit to a world that is unreachable by any other means, a world that is populated by Eternal Truths, Ineffable Questions and Infinite Beauty. It is my hope that these stories of mine will allow the reader to also catch a glimpse of this universe."

Email: judy.dick@theaustraliatimes.com.au

Judy lives with her husband, Steve on what she terms is a slice of paradise on five acres in Burrum Heads. 'Across the sea' from Fraser Island their property is part of a little hamlet located six minutes drive from the beach where she and her dogs walk in solitary bliss. She and Steve often bump into kangaroos that graze on the lawn and when they're not surrounded by lorikeets, king parrots, currawongs, gallahs, red and yellow tailed cockatoos at feeding time, they're busy keeping their garden in shape.It's here Judy found her inspiration to write about nature. Having always been a passionate writer who has had some of her poetry published, she is fuelled with determination and a deep need to communicate through the written word. Currently ghost writing for a client in Dubai, writing articles is an opportunity to branch out.As they say, when you do what you love and you love what you do, it comes nowhere near that pesky word called 'Work'. There's no such thing when you're writing about animals.
