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)

My first attempt at writing sci fi featured a character called Kyra, a sword-wielding mercenary woman who constantly lied about her past. She was my favourite to write, so when I decided to start a new series it made sense to clear up some of that confusion and tell the real story behind Kyra. I had to create the story in my head years ago, to be able to keep her character consistent, and it was just begging to become a series of its own! It's completely separate from the Earth Warden series, as it takes place a long time before those books, developing her from a young girl into a sarcastic, ass-kicking freedom fighter ;)(less)

My new book is out now!

Hi folks! I just wanted to let you all know that I’ve finally launched a new book…
'Spark of Resistance' – part one of a trilogy exploring the origins of Kyra, from the Earth Warden books!

She’s my favourite character by a mile, and I really wanted to explore her backstory – to find out what happened to turn her into the ass-kicking, sarcastic, compulsive liar that we know and love. Writing a book e Read more of this blog post »

Very drawn out with litte action

The title says it all, really. I feel like Ms. Rice is so in love with her rambling prose, and her editors so terrified of saying anything against her, that her books become bloated with endless pages of introspection,

Weird and hilarious!

A collection of odd tales and strange stories, all told with a sterling wit. Many a chuckle is to be had amongst the delicious randomness of these pages.

“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!: Will Boy Become Man? Or Will Boy Become Breakfast...

“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.”
Tony James Slater, Can I Kiss Her Yet?: A True Tale of Love, Marriage... and Camels
