About Robert Peterson

The Author grew up in North Queensland in the wettest town in Australia, as oldest of three boys after his elder sister suspiciously drowned in the Babinda Creek. He achieved an Associate Degree in Agriculture at Gatton Campus of Queensland University. Began serious writing on retirement after joining a local writing club and Writing.com. Accomplished writing awards at school and local shows, wrote agricultural extension and research articles, monthly farm memos and local newspapers over 20 years and collection of sensitive security metadata on a diamond mine. Humour arose as positive energy-challenging dimples of 30plus surgical operations over his life. The Author’s written work is Australian fiction reworked from numerous assumed bush homicides garnered while imbibing over a bar, around a campfire or out fishing on the Great Barrier Reef.
The Author’s non-fiction life’s work competes as a Guinness Records tag for life’s stuff-ups, such as riding on a large crocodile, bitten by snakes, a giant eel, a stonefish, tiger sharks, gored and kicked by horses and cattle.
The Author presently lives in Seville Grove, Western Australia with his wife Glenys.
