This blog is for me to shout out to the world what I am thinking about.
I am a retired traffic manager now living on Queensland’s beautiful Sunshine Coast. Since retiring I have researched my family tree and written four books.
After I retired to Queensland’s Sunshine Coast in 2014, I took an interest in researching my family. I discovered links back to the 1400’s and even a distant link to the Royal Family of United Kingdom.
During my research, I discovered I had 6 relatives who fought in the Great War. I was familiar, with my relatives in the 2nd World War, but knew nothing about my family who had fought in tI Great War.
My research led me to write my first book “A Family That Went to War”
After I published the book I realised that it was not enough, so I settled down and commenced writing “An Australian Story – the saga of an Australian Family over two centuries”
In this I included the stories of Australia’s early settlement and of the events that made Australia and the makings of a family.
When the book sat on top of the Amazon.com bestselling list for the Kindle history of Australia and Oceania I felt that I was achieving my goals. An Australian Story remained on top of the list for 10 days.
I was amazed that I could write three books in less than 12 months, particularly as only recently I discovered that I had mild dyslexia all my life.
My third book “The Ministry Communications Unit” is pure fiction based on a fictitious movie company set up by the government during World War 2. I based a lot of my stories around the locations that surround Caloundra.
My 4th Book “Lady Ruth Bromfield” is now released opens the world of fiction to a new level. I feel that this will be my greatest book with a wide area of interest.
