About Rex Sumner

Rex is English, but was born in Java, Indonesia and has spent many years in the Far East. He speaks Indonesian and Malay, sadly he has forgotten his Javanese, Dutch, Thai, Hokkien and Teow Chu.
He has had an interesting life - as a youngster worked his passage on a container ship to Australia where he worked as a cowboy, goldminer, salesman and fruitpicker, before switching from Zoology to the Army to study at Sandhurst.
He saw active service in Northern Ireland and later worked for MI6 as a Soviet double agent. A country manager for an International tobacco trader at 25, he worked as a business consultant in Indonesia before returning to the UK where he raised his two boys while working in marketing and publishing, with forays into NLP and personal development. Now they are adult, he has moved back to the Far East where he travels, writes and researches.
He has always had a passion for writing and this was rekindled by telling stories to his sons.
His hobbies are angling, reptiles, orchids, reading and hockey, though he fears that in his late 50's he is now a little old to keep playing the latter.
His wide experience and knowledge are interwoven into the tapestry of his writing.

Review by: James Jenkins on Feb. 7, 2016 :
Exceptionally well written, great delivery, characters have substance and story is plausible. I am downloading the other 3 published works in the series now.

Story stands alone well, does not end in an annoying cliff hanger, leaves me wanting to read more. Very happy more has been published.

I am normally hesitant to read shorter stories as it is hard to engage the reader in such a small piece of writing. However I am glad I decided to give it a chance, entertaining and a perfect length to complete in a coffee break.
