Benedict Lovelace and the Travelling Show

Benedict Lovelace engages 19-year-old Tommy Turkin to do some rat catching, renovations, and recruiting for his bold new ‘project’ - a travelling show. Tommy Turkin’s ‘Golden Boys’ train hard, swim well, and learn a host of new skills in Old Fremantle without really knowing what their role is going to be.

In early 1898, they travel to Kalgoorlie, but not everyone looks forward to their arrival! More

About Jeff Hopkins

About the Author
Jeff Hopkins (1950) is a retired schoolteacher. He lives in Western Australia with his black Labrador dog, Sammy. As the drama master at a private boys’ school he wrote eleven original musical plays and produced and directed them at the school.
In 1992 he researched and wrote a family history, Life’s Race Well Run, and after retiring in 2006 he has written nine novels:
Artifice (2015)
Gnarl (2015)
The Spiv: The Robbie Sparrow Story (2015)

Reflections (2016)
Rocking Horse Rider (2016)
The Hydrographer: The Clyde Steadman Story (2017) and
Lord Gnarl (2017).
Jeff previously maintained he wrote entirely for pleasure, and to fill in the long summer months between football seasons. Recently he has admitted that he set himself the task of writing in a number of different genres as part of a three year programme to learn about creative writing and self-publishing. He said it was like an undergraduate degree course for which there was a strict budget and work schedule. It has since become clear that the whole experiment was one of the most interesting and absorbing things he had done in his life. He continues to write.
