'Beetle Creek' has enjoyed great success in Northwest NSW ...its bush setting, and also in QLD. Overseas buyers have also commented favourably. To purchase, visit

Background Information

The Australian bush itself is my major influence. It breeds tough people with a dry sense of humour. I spent 40 years on a wheat farm in northern NSW, destroying my health, sanity and bank balance... but the experience got me writing. My most profound literary influences are from the 19th century - Henry Lawson, Banjo Patterson and, most of all, Steele Rudd, creator of Dad and Dave in "on Our Selection".

Birth Place
Bega,  Australia

Bored with going round in circles on a tractor, I experienced a mid-life crisis which saw me studying English Lit, German language, History and Sociology at the University of New England, Armidale, NSW. That led to a satisfying late-life career teaching Communication, English, creative writing, and adult literacy at the Moree Campus of Technical and Further Education (TAFE).

Additional Information

I am now 'retired' and have a popular email-based novel writing course and writer mentoring service at I also have a bust manuscript editing business at
