August 2016 – thought for the month!!
So my 3rd novel is now finished! Woo Hoo! “Max Justice” – a vigilante story with a difference and some rather disturbing themes! My aim is to take the reader on a journey where they experience a range of emotions and perhaps think a little about some serious issues. Anyway, now for some proof reading, editing & cover design. So some weeks yet before the first copy rolls off the printer. Exciting!!!
Bob Goodwin was born in Nottingham, England in 1953. He moved with his parents, brother and 3 sisters to Australia in 1961 on board the Oriana.
The early years were spent mainly in Taringa, Brisbane, with education at Ironside State School and then Indooroopillly High School. Most of Bob’s working career has been in the area of mental health. He completed General and Psychiatric Nursing training and followed this with a Degree in Counselling.
This experience is reflected in much of his writing, and since 1987 he has written many short stories, short plays, one-act plays, short screen plays and feature length screenplays.
In recent years his focus has been on writing fiction novels in the thriller / suspense genre. His third novel will be completed in 2016. “Strike Me Dead” and “The 13th Black Candle” have had some great reviews and are available in all formats (links above).
Some of Bob’s best ideas come first thing in the morning. He will often lie in bed developing the next chapter, plans for the next book or the next play. Some disturbing dreams and real life mental health encounter have been inspirational in character and plot development.
