About this author

Gary survived an aeroplane crash into a petrol station, getting run over by a car and a quarter century of marriage. He invented a security device for Harley-Davidson motorcycles and has flown a hot air balloon over Hong Kong. Sentenced to 5 years in a boys boarding school in Australia has toughened him up and prepared him for a life of mayhem. He’s an avid hunter and fisher and loves his girlfriend, Colette the boat, he says with a sparkle in his eye. Gary has a sense of humour that will shock the pants off you and have you running down the street gathering up your head after you laughed it off. Prepare yourself for anything because that is what you can expect from his books. Reader beware!

There are twelve books planned for the Urban Hunte

Book 8 in the Urban Hunters series (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Oct 14, 2013 04:30AM
Description: Wish I could give you a description, even a hint but this next one is a big surprise in the series so mum's the word :) I guess what I can tell you is it has a brand new cover which some say is the best yet. "Moody." "Scary." Mid November is my deadline to get it to the editors. If I can do that, I reckon I'll have it out for Christmas which means four books for the year. Yee hah!
