Over the years I have worked at anything and everything, mostly self-employed. I have always enjoyed writing, and have been published in books, journals and magazines. I have a lifelong love of nature, and really enjoy living with my wife and four children in our solar-powered, stone house in the bush.

I enjoy writing about health, government policy and legislation. I am passionate about empowering people who feel disempowered by their experiences (such as disability) so they can get on with living a fulfilling, productive and happy life.

DiVine's Heidi Everett has some fun with Rudely Interrupted at the website launch

December 3 is DiVine's birthday. Research found people with a disability wanted their own place on the web. DiVine was the result. There are 35 people who now write for DiVine. All DiVine writers have disabilities. The site now has over 500 articles. There have been many highlights over the past two years. One highlight was Carly Findlay winning an award for her DiVine articles. Graeme Turner also got a job as a writer for Vision Australia. You can let us know about your favourite DiVine articles.

Listening to people with a disability

Many people with a disability receive services to help them. Sometimes these services could be better. People with a disability are able to talk about ways that services can be improved. There are rules to help ensure people's rights. There are lots of ways you can have a say. You can also get involved with local government. Having a say can help improve council services.

Heidi Everett has some fun with Rudely Interrupted at the DiVine launch

The DiVine website was launched in Melbourne yesterday. DiVine is the first website in Australia for and by people with a disability. The Victorian Government asked people with a disability what they wanted on a website. People told them that they wanted their own place where they felt special. The launch was held on International Day of People with Disability. To celebrate, popular band Rudely Interrupted played music at the Arts Centre.
