The author’s main paper qualification is a PhD in photonuclear physics, i.e. nuclear reactions induced by photons, from the University of Melbourne. He has necessarily written a number of scientific papers in this field.
In the 1970s, he wrote a review paper on the subject of Global Atmospheric Consequences of the Combustion of Fossil Fuels, which (as might be imagined) was ground breaking at the time.
His literary accomplishments are a short story published in the Australian literary journal Tabloid Story in the 1970s, and a screenplay funded by Film Victoria in the 1980s but never produced. Where Pademelons Play is his first novel.
He has written two novels: Where Pademelons Play and The Spaceman.
