Tony James Slater is a very, very strange man. He believes himself to be indestructible, despite considerable evidence to the contrary. He sometimes makes strange faces whilst pretending to be attacked by inanimate objects. But perhaps his single biggest problem is this; he has a mouth so big he is in danger of swallowing his own head. As a result he often ends up far from mainstream civilization, tackling ridiculous challenges and subjecting himself to constant danger. He gets hurt quite a lot.

Hi there!
After 'Shave My Spider!' was released in May last year, I took a bit of time off to travel around the US, staying with a load of my readers. I got 'home' to Perth in early 2017, and have been working flat out on a new book ever since! It should be released within the next month, and it's a prequel, following my disastrous attempt to become a world-famous actor... SPOILER ALERT - I never succeeded ;)
It will be called, 'Don't You Know Who I Am?'(less)

Yes, book three, 'Warden's Fury', should be coming out the first week in July! It's taken me way longer than I expected to write it because I've been travelling, but I'm all done now! If you find me on Facebook and send me a friend request, as soon as the book's ready I'll be posting about it like crazy ;)
Cheers Wulf!

Missing Chapter Part Three!

Hi folks! Sorry for the long absence. Not only have Roo and I switched hemispheres again, I’ve been crazy busy trying to get my latest sci-fi book finished. I know, I know! But don’t worry, I’ve still got plans outside the realm of exploding spaceships and genetically-engineered assassins. Here, for example, is another of the […]

Tony Slater Tony Slater said: " Wow. This book really brought it home, just how hard it can be to achieve your dreams. Living in paradise is never as easy as it seems, and for some people – like Joe Cawley and his semi-dysfunctional family group – it is really, REALLY hard!

“Please don't follow in my footsteps. I'm already knee-deep in them, and am sinking rapidly...”
Tony James Slater

“And then came the three-toed sloth. Stupid sloth. It was a crazy-looking beastie, all arms and bristling grey fur; its body was a blob, the kind of shape a six-year-old would draw for a pig, and its face was flattened like a racoon that had run full tilt into a brick wall. A triangular stub of a nose jutted out at an angle beneath a fringe that must have been difficult to see through. In fact, from side-on it looked disturbingly like John Lennon.”
Tony James Slater, That Bear Ate My Pants!

“I must have been a very naughty boy in a previous life to end up with two left feet and the grace of a dead hippopotamus.”
