Born in 1954 in Brisbane, David Taylor joined the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) at 17. After a varied 21-year career as a Radio Technician, Chinese Linguist and Intelligence Officer he founded Southern Computers & Software. After selling the business in 1995 he joined Industry Capability Network Queensland (ICN), part of a national network of independent industry assistance organisations, eventually becoming General Manager in 2007 and guiding the company through a successful merger with Brisbane-based QMI Solutions Ltd.
Always interested in small towns, great architecture and history, he drove famous Route 66 in 2009. Inspired by the experience and the many similarities between USA’s Route 66 and the hidden gem that is Australia’s Highway One, he became a full-time writer in 2011. He is now planning the next volumes in the Highway One Travel Companion series.
He lives just outside Murwillumbah in the beautiful Northern Rivers district in the far north of New South Wales.

Illustrations remind me of a by-gone era when books were historical classics. Very nice.
