I was born to a full blood Aboriginal mother and an Anglo Australian father. I had one full sister called Pandela. My Father and natural mother, Mary separated when I was just a baby. My dad then married again when I was two years old to my mother Eileen, who is from South Australia. Mum had already had a son, as she was widowed at the age of 21. Tony, who was 3 years older than me, then became my step brother.
