About Graham Wilson

Graham Wilson lives in Sydney Australia. He has completed and published six books, published by Smashwords.

The first, a novel called "The Old Balmain House" is based on an old a weatherboard cottage in Sydney where he lived. Here a photo was discovered of a small girl who lived and died about 100 years ago.

The book imagines the story of her life and family, based in the real Balmain, an early inner Sydney suburb, with it's real locatons and and historical events providing part of the story background..

The second novel in this series, Lizzie's Tale" builds on "The Old Balmain House" setting, It is the story of a working class teenage girl who lives in this same house in the 1950s and 1960s, It tells of how, when she becomes pregnant she is determined not to surrender her baby for adoption, and of her struggle to survive in this unforgiving society. A third novel in this series is planned for NaNoWriMo, following the next generation of the family in Lizzie'sTale.

Graham has also written a family memoir "Children of Arnhem's Kaleidoscope." It tells of his childhood in an aboriginal community in remote Arnhem Land, in Australia's Northern Territory, one of its last frontiers. It tells of the people, danger and beauty of this place, and of its transformation over the last half century with the coming of aboriginal rights and the discovery or uranium. It also tells of his surviving an attack by a large crocodile.

He has also written the first three of a series of five novels based in Outback Australia, called the Crocodile Spirit Dreaming Series. The first novel "Just Visiting." tells the story of an English backpacker who visits the Northern Territory and becomes captivated and in great danger from a man who loves crocodiles. The second book in the series, "The Diary" follows the consequences of the first book based around the discovery of this man's remains and his diary and the main character being placed on trial for murder. The third book, "The Empty Place" is about the struggle of the main character to retain her sanity in jail while her family and friends desperately try to find out what really happened on that fateful day before it is too late. Two further books in 2015 will conclude this series, "The Lost Girls" and "Where Sunlit Shadows Dance."

Graham is in the early stages of planning a memoir about his family's connections with Ireland called "Memories Only Remain"

Graham writes mostly for the creative pleasure it brings him. He is particularly gratified each time an unknown person chooses to download and read something he has written and write a review - good or bad, as this gives him an insight into what readers enjoy and helps him make ongoing improvements to his writing.

In his non writing life he is a wildlife veterinarian working with zoo animals and on national parks.

A great read with wonderful descriptions of places in the NT (and elsewhere) that are visited by this couple as they zig zag across the NT. Now I will need to read the next book to follow on with this chilling saga! Good on you Graham, keep up the great writing!

What a great story, loved the characters, loved the impossible choices, even got to feel sympathy for a crazy psychopath.
Here is a new author who I have just discovered who I think will go far. I have also downloaded the sequel and looking forward to seeing whether it lives up to expectations

I have just re-read this book for the second time and think it is great. It seems to capture the Northern Territory with great authenticity. No surprise after reading the author's own memoir.
But it is also a really good story about how something which begins as love turns to horror and yet some of the love remains. The characters are such a mix of the good and the bad which is in us all.

Just Visiting: Loved this book. The two main characters were well-written and believable. The descriptions of the peoples and Australian outback were amazing. Hope the sequel lives up to the first.
