Kevin Hurst


Born in Liverpool UK, Kevin Hurst emigrated to Australia in 1973 and has lived in Sydney for the last 46 years.
His working life has been spent in managerial positions, in a wide range of manufacturing industries.
Since retiring 12 years ago, his time has been spent pursuing a golf ball around heavily treed but shaded areas; and trying to hit a small white ball during Lawn Bowls.
A recent attempt at Tennis, lead him to write his first novel instead.
He is an active organisational member of a Probus club, a social golf club and a Lawn bowls club.
In case there was some spare time, he has enjoyed travel, cinema, theatre, and exercise.
He has done very little reading of books - so why he chose to try and write one is a mystery in itself.

Smashwords Interview

At this late stage in your life, what made you want to write a novel?
I suppose an idea for a novel, popped into my head some years back. Then overtime several other thoughts entered the half empty area of my cranium. After a few months of simmering away, I thought -"Why not give it a go!" So I did - it was amazing how the experience was so enjoyable and rewarding.
Despite this being a crime novel, there appears to be a significant humourous content. Why is this?
I guess I just can't help myself.
There is a saying that if you were born in Liverpool, you have to have a sense of humour just to cope with living there.
