Darryl Greer spent the first part of his life in Queensland. Cutting short his education due to his sheer boredom with school, at the age of fifteen he left to work on a milk run. Over the years he tried his hand as variously a window cleaner, cocktail barman, wine waiter, clerk and car salesman. His recreation was as a guitarist and backing singer in a rather ordinary rock band.
At twenty-eight, he studied Law and upon graduation set up his own law firm. After nine years in the tropics, he became disenchanted with constant blue skies, gently swaying coconut palms and scuba-diving on the Great Barrier Reef, sold up his business and moved with his family to London. He practised there for many years, specialising in commercial litigation, returning to Queensland in 2004 and now lives with his wife in the Gold Coast hinterland.
The Author has written in his spare time for as long as he can remember. For a period he wrote articles for various international magazines. In 2009 he published his début novel, The Election, followed in 2011 by Calvus.
Apart from being driven by writing, he lives for his family. Darryl enjoys walking, swimming, travel, theatre, cinema, reading – thrillers of course – and he can still pen a song and play a decent tune on the guitar.
