Douglas Gellatly was brought up on a farm in the Wimmera district of Victoria, Australia. During the course of his life he has experienced working as a farmer, medical research institute field station manager, funeral director, travel consultant and cafe proprietor.
He now lives in central Victoria with his partner, Jon, where they operate a small food preserving business and importing business, with a retail shop in the business district of Clunes, Australia's (and the southern hemisphere's) only International Booktown.
After a life-time of living life, Douglas took up writing in his late sixties and has now completed three novels, "Lake Brambruck", "Golton Island" and "Corker's Creek". All are set in the Wimmera district of Victoria, Australia. His third novel, "Corker's Creek" completes "The Wimmera Trilogy".
He now regards his first novel, "Lake Brambruck", as his 'trial' novel and offers it for free as it contains a few typos. However, it is being revised before its inclusion in "The Wimmera Trilogy", a collection of all three stories.
"Mount Zero" is the boxed set of Douglas Gellatly's first three novels, and constitutes "The Wimmera Trilogy." It was released in January of 2015.
His aim is to write stories that entertain the reader, and he loves to hear back from readers.
on July 17, 2013 :
Continuation of a new fashioned love story between two throughly likeable characters, Richard and Max set in a country town in Australia. The descriptions of the Australian bush are so authentic I am transported there. At present savouring the last few chapters because I do not want it to come to an end.
