Author Bio

George began writing quite late in life. His first story, ‘My Dad’, was published in a book of short stories called ‘The Man Who Played Spoons’. His second story, ‘Looking Back’, won first prize in a competition run by the city of Casey. 

In 1989, Ros Bowman interviewed him about his unusual childhood for her programme ‘Word of Mouth’ on the ABC radio. This attracted so much interest from listeners that they did a second interview. Some time later, he wrote a book about his early life, but then lost interest in writing and only now, at 90, with time running out, has decided to publish it.

It is fantastically funny, warm and real in every evoking emotion the author shares…if you are Australian, or love Australia, you must read this exceptional book…” John, Indiebook reviewer
