About Tim Berman PhD

Tim Berman was always a day-dreamer at school; good at writing 'composition' but never on time for things that were important to teachers like marching into class.

As an adult, he worked at a number of jobs until he 'lucked' into copy writing for a marketing company. He revelled in composing advertising phrases and slogans designed to attract attention and engender thought-provocation. He was quite successful at this and eventually shared third partnership in an advertising agency in Sydney.

Berman's spare moments were shared between flying, shooting, underwater exploration and writing. Then he got married.

This, however, did not diminish his curiosity and creativity. When the opportunity arose to explore the prospect of the truth about some fake coinage found aboard an old Dutch shipwreck in Australian waters, he went into research mode and discovered a factor in the story never before told. The result is this book which depends somewhat on some speculative writing bringing together all the elements of truth behind a tale often told.

Berman is busy finishing three new stories at his home on the South Coast which he shares with his lovely wife and charming dogs. Tim Berman is the author's 'nom-de-plume'.
