Tell us something about yourself that most people wouldn’t know…

Most famous person you’ve ever met?
Apart from some of my writing friends? <grin>. I met Bob Hawke once. I was at Port Macquarie airport to fly to Lord Howe Island and he stepped off the plane I was about to board. We shook hands and I was struck with his down-to-earth attitude and happy smile.
