April 2017

Next month there will be a Pop Up Bookshop at the Buderim Tavern on the 7th May from 10 am to 2 pm. buderim-tavern

If you are in the area it will be a great opportunity to meet local authors and check out their work. The last Pop Up Bookshop was wonderful with good attendance and an huge variety of genres on display. Of course I will be there with hardcopies of my 3 novels and some special deals. Happy to discuss any of my work with visitors and maybe share a few snippets on my next novel (the 2nd book in the Max Judd series) which is well underway.

“Long patience and application saturated with your heart’s blood—you will either write or you will not—and the only way to find out whether you will or not is to try.”

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.
