Welcome to Bob’s Home Page

 December 2017


I have received a new order of “Max Justice: Turmoil” paperbacks, so all ready for Christmas! How about this – both “Max Justice” & “Max Justice: Turmoil” as a gift this year. Special price of $30 (pick up) or $40 incl’ postage to anywhere in Australia! Signed of course for no extra!! Or may be a combination of any of my 4 novels.

The news this morning told me that books (not ebooks) will be a popular gift this year – I hope that’s true! And I hope I get a couple – some of my favourite fiction authors are John Grisham; Dean Kootnz & James Patterson.

Please, if you do buy an Amazon digital copy of any of my publications, don’t forget to post a review!

All the best for the season to all and thanks to everyone for your support this year.

Rejection slips, or form letters, however tactfully phrased, are lacerations of the soul, if not quite inventions of the devil—but there is no way around them.

Bob Goodwin 

Your friendly Aussie author 



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.
