"The Story of my Life", is the memoir of our mother, Vera Malan Patterson, first written by her in 1987. This 2nd edition is published to celebrate her 90th birthday (June 2013).
My books reflect travels with my partner Deb, within Western Australia and on our international adventures. After a 37 year career in public service I now pursue my long term interest in all things 'geography', particularly through travel. Ian is a past Secretary to the Western Australian Planning Commission (2003 to 2005) and managed its statutory land-use planning systems for many years. Most recently (2005 to 2009), Ian was a policy advisor to Western Australian State Ministers for Planning.
