About this author

Hi GoodReaders, I’m an Australian author residing in Sydney with my wife, son and oversized black German Shepherd named Jess. My novels are now available globally, also in Large Print and now in full AUDIO format.

I grew up spending my days surfing at Bondi Beach before entering a career in Information technology which took me around the world. After completing an MBA, i was appointed both an Australasian director of a multinational software company, and tasked with setting up the USA arm of the organisation.

Today, I’m still involved in IT, but spend most of my time writing... with plenty left over for surfing.

More information about me and my works can be found at either www.greigbeck.com, or join me on FaceBook (Greig Beck Author).

Greig Beck is one of my favourite authors these days.
His Alex Hunter series is a wonderful set of books that seem to cross the void between Michael Crichton, Andy McNab and Matthew Reilly.

Topics Mentioning This Author

“Hell is not hot, or cold. Nor is it deep below ground, or somewhere in the sky. Instead it is a place on Earth filled with sucking bogs, disfiguring diseases and millions of tiny flesh-eating creatures.
Hell is a jungle, and it is monstrously green.”
Greig Beck, This Green Hell

Greig Beck No worries Mark. Look's like you've got some good works turned out there, and a great subject - thrillers - my favourite. Cheers mate, Greig

Mark Carver Thanks for accepting my friend request. You seem like a cool dude...I live in China and I've met several people from Australia ("Straya") and by and large they're nice people. It's also nice to meet writers who are a bit sunnier than the rest (seems like 80% live somewhere with winter weather 5 months out of the year, and from their author photos it takes its toll). I've managed to get a hold of the Alex Hunter books...looking forward to them!
