I write articles and books about local Gladstone district history.
My latest book due for publication in 2017 is a tale of exploration, adventure and murder set in Australia, with links to Gladstone’s history. Read about the life of a man who died young pursuing his passion.
I have published a collection of stories about the street names of Gladstone, “What’s in a Name? The stories behind the street names of Gladstone”. My first published book gives a glimpse into the fascinating history behind the street names of the city of Gladstone, Queensland, Australia.
I research local history and write a daily column called “Times Gone By” in the “Gladstone Observer” our local newspaper. Many of these articles feature historical accounts of the many people who have played a part in the development of the Gladstone region.
I conduct History Walks along Goondoon Street and relate the history of some of the buildings along the way. Some of these buildings have been depicted in Geoff Head’s Lino-cuts which are installed on the footpaths.
