Bob Goodwin

Biography

I have been writing since 1987. My influences have come from my counselling and over 30 years experience in the field of mental health. I am a happy father of 7 children and I think my grandchildren will soon overpopulate the known world. I have also worked for 5 years in remote aboriginal communities in Australia. I have written many One Act plays, shorter plays, short stories and 3 feature length screenplays and one novel (so far!). I hope to be discovered before I die!!! But if not I'll continue to enjoy my writing, lawn bowls, chess, poker & family life.
Please check out some of my work that is available here at Smashwords (at a very low price) - all feedback is welcome.
