Ron Davidson was born into a Perth newspaper family and served his time as a journalist. He failed first-year English at the University of Western Australia three times before giving up and taking a psychology degree. Ron lectured in psychology for twenty years and published academic papers before rediscovering the family knack for storytelling. Meanwhile Ron was having a love affair with Fremantle during his thirty years in a heritage house there. He accumulated stories, characters and places, and the result, Fremantle Impressions, has been hailed as a new way of writing about cities.
