About A R Dent

A.R. Dent was born in 1945 in Sydney and lived at a beach side suburb. After a turbulent/quiet contrasting early life A.R. Dent then spent time travelling before settling down for a business and professional life.
'Been there - done that' about sums up his life.
A Professional Artist and now also including his love of writing and poetry into his life.
In writing To Kill a Bunyip I had a plan. Write the book more stupid than Ocker Oscar (that was a challenge).
I now have another plan; write each book more stupid than the last book.
The single goal of A R Dent is to create original stories that entertain.
I am not writing books. I am not an author. I am now a storyteller. I have a present 'work-in-progress' to follow after To Kill a Bunyip and experimenting with other stories to find my true 'author's voice' which is there but I need to fine tune it specifically for storytelling. Short stories and Novellas are my aim to entertain through the written word.
All books/stories are related to me...... Ocker Oscar and To Kill a Bunyip were written from my experiences in my life. All stories will have a theme or plot that is connected somehow to my life. My intent is to write, using satire, in a way that people see history as a continuum that changes but remains constant. Fiction, facts, and lies.
My next book is - The People of Null (title may change). Details of the progress are posted on A R Dent Facebook page.

The Justice of Null is the core to Hollow Log Stories. My writing style has changed somewhat but satire remains as the main theme within my writings. Ocker Oscar is connected to To Kill a Bunyip though the Dawson family and the twins. These two books are present day. The Justice of Null focuses on 1857 when Terrence Null was told he was to be a Justice of the Peace. The Justice of Null is the book that Hollow Log Stories draws its characters and stories. The People of Null is in concept stage and being researched and developed. The People of Null is back in real time in the village of Null when a psychiatrist goes to Null for retirement. *Waiting for god* in a retirement village and being told to fit into society. This concept has me laughing as I write the precis and develop a story around this theme.

Killing a Bunyip requires a lot of strategy and mystery. This author keeps you in suspense all the way! This story is a real page turner. Certainly a good read for lovers of life looked at through a different set of spectacles. A funny and intriguing story.
