scared

Seven chapters completed in the sequel to Max Justice! Pretty pleased with my progress – some unexpected disturbing themes evolving! This is a good thing – right? Sometimes I even surprise & worry myself!

I have no title for the novel yet – but thinking the word “Justice” needs to be in there somewhere. Any suggestions welcome! If you have read Max Justice you will have some clues as to the sequel – just add in some mental health themes and disturbing new characters!!

BOB’S BIO’

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.
