Background Information


I either started off on the wrong foot or I’m the legendry rolling stone. Normally, a degree in astrophysics does not lead to ownership of a backpacker resort via Parliament House Canberra, public relations and the diving industry but that’s what happened to me.

I’m now retired in the sense that I no longer need to work for a living and that gives me time for writing. My messy life has provided some good background material for my novels.

Birth Place
Sherborne,  UK

PhD degree in astrophysics

Additional Information

Research astronomer. Ministerial staffer, Parliament House, Canberra. Dive boat, owner/operator of North Queensland backpacker resort. Writer.

Curtin Express/ebook
Author's note: While interviewing elderly Townsville residents as part of an oral history project, I learnt of the Curtin Express. In brief, Australia was at war with Japan and thousands of allied servicemen in northern Australia were short of female company. To solve that problem Prime Minister Curtin authorised a train to leave Brisbane Central Station for North Queensland. Any woman could travel free of charge. The train became known as the Curtin Express and the girls were called Curtin Girls. I interviewed some of the ladies and learnt about others. One was a formidable woman who used the proceeds of her wartime endeavours to build a business empire. She was the inspiration for the present novel.
