Lost in Infinity
Follow me on Twitter at WylieSnow
Almost every author says they wanted to write from a very early age. Not me. I wanted to be a detective like Nancy Drew, or a wildlife expert like Jim Fowler or an archaeologist like Indiana Jones. Or own an island resort and make fantasies come true!
I didn’t do too badly with any of those…
I married a detective, worked in a zoo, explored shipwrecks instead of old ruins, and spent 18 glorious years living on a sunny island.
As for those fantasies…
That’s another book ;)

George Henry is a fan of the noir novels of writers such as Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett, in which self-destructive protagonists swim in a sea of corruption towards lose-lose situations on a distant dark shore. However, George is far more optimistic than that: he adds humour and the hope of love to his thrillers. Don't expect pat endings—he's noticed that life doesn't serve them up very often.
Influenced by the Philip Kerr's hard Berlin detective, Bernie Gunther, Robert Wilson's fixer and debt collector, Bruce Medway, and Len Deighton's insubordinate spy, Harry Palmer, George Henry paints his morally pragmatic protagonist, the witty Milo Marchetti, into furiously paced thrillers with memorable char ... read more

Kathleen’s interest in Aboriginal affairs came about while she was attending primary school in the eastern suburbs of Sydney. During a social studies class—that involved the production of a diorama enacting the First Fleet landing at Sydney Cove—she made black pipe-cleaner people, which were placed at the back of the diorama. Her curiosity about Indigenous Australians was ignited when her teacher told her they were all dead, but within a few months—after a family relocation to Darwin in the Northern Territory—she discovered they were alive and well. It was a memorable moment in her life that triggered a desire to know the full history of her country of birth, and understand why so much of it was hidde ... read more

I came to this planet fifty some odd years ago. After exiting my mother's portal, the doctor slapped me around until I started breathing the oxygen. I'll admit, at the time, I had no idea what I was doing or where I was. Being an infant Human, I was completely reliant on the responsible actions of others. It was a time that I have largely forgotten.
I reside in Central Florida with the wife and children. After thirty years in engineering, my time is now spent chronicling the adventures of fictitious heroes.
