Ron Burrows


Ron Burrows, ex-postie, late of the South Melbourne Disaster Centre, married to Ladybugs, father of Geoffrey and Penny, grandfather of Laura, Tori, Ami and Mason, longtime resident of the Western Suburbs of Melbourne and author of 'The Postie And The Priest', has always been a writer masquerading as someone else. For close to twenty years he did a fine job of pretending to be a postman, fooling everyone including himself. Imagine his delight at being anointed the biographer of the gregarious Father Bob – no better fully formed character could a writer ever hope to capture in the snare of words that is a book. Sharing this story with others was all Ron ever hoped to do.

The Postie And The Priest is an unlikely collaboration between a priest and his postie whose alter ego demands that he write. Whilst penning the priest's story, laced with the postie's interjections, he allows his alter-ego some latitude resulting in a biography about the iconic Father Bob Maguire whose message could well be: "Love thy neighbour but don't become holier than thou whilst doing it."
