Profile Information

Logan City, (South of Brisbane) Australia.
About Me:
I am in my early 50s and have recently returned to my birthplace in Australia, having lived in Ireland for many years. My first published short story
Cold Comfort
was published online on the Australian Crime Fiction Database. Comments and reviews would be most welcome.
See my website for details of my published crime short story and my adventure novel set in the mining industry in Africa.
I Am A:
Reader, Writer
Books And Authors I Like:
I like most crime fiction, and especially like the older novels by authors like Raymond Chandler, Rex Stout, and Erle Stanley Gardner. (Unusually for someone who likes these types of writers, I do not like Dashiell Hammett).
Modern novelists I like are Robert Crais, Michael Connelly and James Patterson. Not limiting myself to male authors, I have just finished Bare Bones by Kathy Reichs and enjoyed it very much.
Non fiction is usually aviation related, or historical.
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
I don't have a lot of time to watch TV, but it would normally be crime dramas such as "Law and Order", any courtroom drama, or CSI.
Of non-fiction, I like documentaries showing forensics and police procedures.

Hi Denis: I'm a huge fan of Kathy Reichs. Love Bare Bones. Her new novel is out and I hope to get it and find time to read it soon. Have you tried James Lee Burke? He's my writing muse. I write mystery and suspense novels.
