Dane McCormack was born and raised in Tasmania. He escaped to the mainland to pursue his career and has worked on the factory floor gaining a trade certificate in Precision Manufacture, also in the boardrooms of multinational firms developing Business Strategies. His love of writing was reawakened as he explored how he survived and thrived through a recent cancer journey. After being given 24hours to live several times and losing his long term memories, he set out on a mighty quest to find them and wrote his autobiography. It emphasised just how important history is, because it made him who he was, which helped him survive and thrive.
