Adrian V grew up in the Country Town of Ballarat, Victoria along with his 4 brothers and 3 sisters.
He graduated from St Patrick’s College High School in 1995 and then went on to study Computers at Ballarat University. Adrian’s schooling wasn’t enjoyable and he experienced bullying throughout.
Tragedy struck Adrian’s family in 1995 losing his Father and Hero to a Heart attack. His father died at such a young age of only 56. After overcoming depression experienced as a result of the loss, Adrian momentarily took some time out and moved to Geelong to live with his eldest sister.
In 1998, Adrian met his future wife Claire in an on-line chat room and he subsequently moved to Sydney to start a fresh.
He went on to further study in Real Estate, Finance and Project Management and established his own Company Vanda Corporation Pty Ltd which he continues to own and manage Today.
Adrian and Claire married in 2002 in a small family affair and in 2007 had the first of 3 beautiful children; Luke (2007), Daniel (2016) and Madeleine (2018).
In 2012 he had a health scare and diagnosed with the early onset of Macular Degeneration and recurrent uveitis which is managed through injections, eye drops and on-going checkups. He subsequently made the decision to no longer drive.
Adrian was diagnosed with a congenital muscle myopathy in 2015 which causes significant joint/muscle pain and fatigue.
Through his experiences Adrian has learned of the hardships of life, cruelty of the world and applies these lessons learned to life and his writing. He ensures he lives with positivity and every experience makes him stronger.
I adore my children and love the uniqueness of their personalities and the experiences spending time with them brings.
Through writing Kaia – The Fairy in the Garden it has enabled me to work on a Project with my children and write an imaginative story for them about them.
Luke, Daniel and Madeleine in the story are my children; just a little older (3 years).
Some elements relate to specific desires that we crave which we all have as bad as they are. I am Country at heart and dream of owning that acreage and owning a horse that I can ride every other day. My kids want a dog or two.
These things may not be possible in real life; however anything is possible when you use your imagination and through a story.
I’ve always had a fascination with magic, magical creatures and in particular Fairies.
As a child I remember loving the Magic of Christmas and Easter and other festive times. I questioned myself what is magic and what made it special? The answer is you believe.
My writing and Kaia – The Fairy in the Garden brings these 3 concepts together in a magical and unique way that I love and I hope you do too.
