About G. M. Worboys

G. M. Worboys grew up on a dairy farm in Victoria, Australia. Education and life led him to the city, first Melbourne and then Sydney. After almost twenty years he decided enough was enough and moved to a small bush block in the southern tablelands of New South Wales, from which he continues to create computer software for clients far removed from the kangaroos and goannas that stare in at him through the office window. A life-long obsession with books finally led him back to writing, an interest that for many years had seen exercise only in technical writing and scarily long emails.

Dryad was his first novel, inspired in part by the trees and the life that is so varied and abundant even in the dry of the Australian bush. Naiad and Nereid complete this first contemporary fantasy series, The Narun, but the writing hasn't stopped.

Review by: Andrew Mowere on Sep. 26, 2016 :
A good story. For how short it was, it certainly highlights how adept at pacing Worboys is.

I think if I have one critique, it's that the descriptions don't keep pace with the story at times. I felt a few times like a hop happened and I wasn't prepared for the transition.

In about fifteen pages there are about three twists and manage to establish how well we like the various characters amidst a fast moving plot. Was the reveal slightly obvious? Just a little. I figured out the general direction early, a half about halfway three, but I had to be told the last part. I am delighted to have picked this up.

A unique little ghost story. Kudos to you if you can figure out the ending, because I certainly couldn't.
