About Derek Mortimer

I live in Sydney, Australia, and grew up in Bradford, Yorkshire, the then, industrial north of England, a place of mills, mines and muck. But, beyond the cities were sweeping moors that seemed to go on forever, an exciting landscape for a boy to explore. Which is probably why when I moved to Australia I fell in love with the great open spaces of the Snowy Mountains – and the sea. I love ocean swimming, and ocean swimming is also a journey across space.
I’m lucky in the sense that I am at home in two countries; in one I am an immigrant, in the other an emigrant. Some of my stories reflect this duality, the immigrant’s life, and the days of childhood in another country. I have an Australian wife, two daughters who were born in England but grew up in Australia, two Australian-born granddaughters, and countless members of an extended family on both sides of the world.

Have you ever wondered how it would be to fall on the wrong side of the law? This action packed story follows the story of Hakim, a mysterious afghan youth and his friend Lexie, as they try to evade the Australian police in a nerve racking adventure. Excellent read.

On the Run is sharply paced and plotted with excellent characterisation. A real page-turner that offers a Sydneysiders the pleasure of seeing their city in print with characters who could be people we know. On the Run offers excellent storytelling and suspense from an accomplished writer. Just read it!

A terrific read, each page brings a new twist and turn. An exciting modern story told with a wonderfully rural Australian backdrop, the best of both worlds. I definitely recommend it.

Fast moving, tense in parts, making you keep on reading waiting for the next twist in the story. Informative detail in setting the scene along with the effect of Lexie's actions on family and friends.
