About Ian Luke

Born in 1966, most of my growing up was done on a dairy farm just outside the border town of Echuca. I started work as a clerk in a law firm in 1984, and within 5 years had been elevated to the position of "Managing Law Clerk". From there I became "Practice Manager" before leaving that profession in 2006. My 1st Malamute came in 1991 as a wedding present. And I've been fortunate enough since then share my life with a number of these wonderful dogs.

"Frozen Below" is my first novel. It has allowed me to write about the wonderful Malamute breed as a working dog, while looking at the question of "what would happen if the climate changed ?" A sequel is in the works, and I am looking forward to continuing the story, and sharing the ride with anyone who wants to come along. I was delighted when it reached Number 1 on Amazon Australia's Drama list.

"Kimba The Pet Shop Puppy" is my first children's book, and addresses in a small way the issue of responsible dog ownership, an issue I'm passionate about. More children's books are on the way.

My two "Buyer's Guides", on the Alaskan Malamute and the Siberian Husky, are short ebooks, written in the hope of providing people some warts and all information before they buy that cute bundle of fluff.

Currently I'm working on a novel based loosely on my own real life experiences working in a law firm that specialised in Criminal Law.

Reviews of Frozen Below by Ian Luke

Peter Nicholas Farrell reviewed on July 27, 2013

Very good read. An unusual plot, Australia suffering a mini Ice Age, but told in such a manner it is hard to put down.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it was well written and fast paced. The environmental aspects that caused the weather event that the book is based on were well written, explained and very believable! My main interest was in the Malamutes but what I really appreciated was that though they were integral to the book it was a brilliant book even without that personal interest. Happy to recommend

Awesome read made me feel so much closer to my Malamute and made me think how lucky we are to have such a loving caring breed that will never leave your side and loves to work hard for there owners

Fabulously written and constantly moving forward. Once I started, I couldn't put it down until done as I wanted to see how this was going to end. Thoroughly enjoyed it and highly recommended.

Excellent paced read. Couldn't put it down. Quite a few surprises and fabulously considered and thought out - I am going to Ian's place when the world freezes.

Fabulous Great page turning read and for those who want to prepare for doomsday gives you the incentive to start doing it. Was happy to sit and read until it was finished. Certainly doesn't stand still for long but I think it should be under the thriller listing as well.

I have very sore eyes from looking at my computer screen to read it, the house work hasn't been done today - but I read a lot of books, and yours was, pacey, thrilling, unexpected, funny and so makes me want to work my dog to get him fit for winter gig racing.
