Hi, my name is Garry James Smith, I was born in Broken Hill (above), a mining town in far western NSW, Australia. Welcome to Garry Jam’s Book Book Review
I’m currently living in Port Macquarie
I think my first long book was Papillon an autobiographical novel written by Henri Charrière, first published in France on 30 April 1969. I think I was 10.
In 1994, I began a Bachelor of Arts at the Christian Heritage College in Brisbane, Australia. My majors were Bible Studies and English literature. My course title was “The Rise Of Western Culture”.
After that, I got a job in Tokyo, teaching English as a foreign language.
After Tokyo I did a graduate diploma in applied linguistics.
A Brief Bio
I’ve graduated from two universities. Christian Heritage College and Griffith University both in Queensland, Australia
During my high school years, I was a boarder at Geelong College in Victoria
I’ve had a varied working career:
- Mining electrician
- Piemaker in my father’s business, “Larry’s Pie Cottage” in Port Macquarie NSW.
- English language teacher in Brisbane and Tokyo
- I reached a semi-professional level playing Australian football in Broken Hill. I thought I would get further.
I am also a gamer. I like StarCraft II. I have posted 3 exemplar missions on YouTube. And I like reading the Bible and hearing from God.
