What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My kids, my wife, my bike. Everyday is an adventure. There is so much to see and do and experience. Whether it be exploring the bush with my children, eating lunch at a cafe with my wife, or riding my bike around the countryside, I don't want to miss a second of it.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Cycling is my passion away from writing. Now that my knees and ankles, so cruelly treated during my younger years playing Australian rules football, have given up the ghost, cycling remains the one sport which doesn't leave me crippled afterwards while still giving me a great work out. Nothing beats zooming around the quiet country roads on my road bike. The feel of the wind on my face and the sight of beautiful surrounds blurring by is great, but for me it is all about the speed. I love knowing that I am going fast and I get some sort of masochistic pleasure out of destroying myself by trying to beat my best times.
The idyllic life of an Australian country boy is turned upside down when his country decides to fight alongside Great Britain in World War One. From promising school boy to Gallipoli veteran, this is the heart wrenching story of Harry's war.
A fantastic book that has something for everyone. There are stories in here that you will keep going back to again and again. An interesting and well written selection with barely a dud page. Thoroughly enoyable.
An amusing read that cuts just a little too close to the truth, although I still think that the main reason cyclists shave their legs is for the ease of cleaning the gravel out of their abrasions after a fall, rather than for streamlining purposes. An enjoyable read.
I've had this book sitting on my ipad for ages and finally got around to reading it. What a tale of courage and survival. The members of this family had so many near misses and yet their luck held and they all made it safely home. A riveting account of life being lived under the most trying of circumstances. A very readable account of life in Malta during WWII.
