About Shaz Cheesman
(Show Details...)
Bloggers PhotoI live in a regional town out of Melbourne in Australia......I refer to this little place I live as 'Quietville' 

I am 43, although age is just a number not a definition. So I enjoy life as much as I possibly can. Writing has always been part of my life - mainly through journalling. But for the last 10 years I have especially taken an interest in writing poems......I have still a great deal to learn. Writing is my creative release.

I enjoy interacting with people and one of my favourite past times is getting involved in local amateur theatre, I enjoy playing comical and unusual characters on stage, but also enjoy coordinating and creating make-up effects for stage productions.
