About Robert Peterson

Born at Babinda, North Queensland; the wettest place in Australia. Attended Gatton Campus, UQA, west of Brisbane. Milked cows, researched, advised, regulated and retailed milk over a 36-year period. Eight years in mining security moulded his animal insight to include human behaviour. Animals, like humans, love to visit ice cream parlours and great restaurants rather than doctors or dentists. Children do likewise. Heaven help the day an animal becomes an economist. Children already have.
Expert sideline sports critic; survived shark attacks, stonefish, snakes and straddled a monster crocodile. Numerous horses and cattle have autographed his body. Showing pigeons and budgerigars progressed to having them as cartoon characters. Kookaburras laugh and crows swear to the beat of kangaroo hip-hop at human intrusion. Robert writes gleaned tales about the Australian bush. The novels are works of fiction, though based on personal and farmer tales of real events. Public speaking in Apex and Rostrum clubs has inspired his goals to write. Robert hopes to finish his autobiographical work on fishing days along the Great Barrier Reef.
