A Survival Guide For Dishonest Political Bastards


This bit of great fun was the first book I wrote in my exciting “retirement” after 2004. There are seven different titles in the National Library now.

I simply love the “busyness.”

I’ll let this battle-scarred image of me on YouTube do the talking here. That will do for now.

Letters to Nowhere


Just for interest: I have a film contract for Letters To Nowhere

This is first a book of stories about human lives. It may also help you towards a better understanding of refugee realities and also international law.

The central figure in this story is a mysterious refugee detained in a remote centre amidst a hostile Australian landscape. He inexplicably disappears at the very beginning of the narrative, leaving behind a cache of letters that is discovered by one of the guards.

The letters tell the stories of an extraordinary range of inmates, befriended by the old man, the enigmatic Number MO131. These letters are each written by the old man to a beautiful young woman, it seems, although there is some brief contention that she may be a figment of his imagination to preserve sanity in this inhospitable place.

The tales that unfold touch on many aspects of the human condition: love and hate, greed and kindness, war and peace, truth and deception, bigotry and compassion, laughter and extremes of sadness. The final letter reveals a surprising truth.

Quotations found when you open the book:

The mind is its own place, and in itself

Can make a Heav’n of Hell, a Hell of Heav’n.

Milton :  Paradise Lost

Give me your tired, your poor,

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,

The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.

Send these, the homeless, tempest tossed to me,

I lift my lamp beside the golden door!

Emma Lazarus: from “The New Colossus,” Statue of Liberty engraving

An Unfrequented Verse

We’ve boundless plains to share;

With courage let us all combine

To advance Australia fair.

In joyful strains then let us sing,

Advance Australia fair.

From Verse 2, Australian National Anthem
