Product description



A rollicking good yarn. Puffing Billy will never be the same to me after this book. Trevor Blum

The Code of Monte Christo is brilliant and funny and full of intrigue.

Robyn Zienow

This is one helluva read. Fox's very individual style is so suited to this genre, giving it a subtle comic underscore without detracting from the suspense. I confess my nervous system was sorely taxed with highs and lows, laughter and tears. It's a most interesting read.

Jonne Finnemore

The Best yarn has been read and thoroughly enjoyed. Tony Gilbee

More than 50 years ago I wrote a poem, well doggerel more like. I've still got that poem. Since then I've written a collection of poems as well as dozens of books, plays and musicals. I 'retired' from teaching in 1984 to write full time.

As a would-be actor I performed in plays and musicals and soon started writing for the stage.

I wrote many radio drama scripts broadcast by the ABC. I became interested in Sherlock Holmes and in particular Arthur Conan Doyle and as a result wrote five books about the Schoolboy Sherlock Holmes as well as two plays and a musical about the Baker Street sleuth. The books have been very successful and the stage shows have become radio plays available on CD.

My first novel for adults not surprisingly features an actress and involves the theatre. It's called A Plum Job and is a WW2 thriller set in Nazi-occupied Paris in 1940.

Without planning to do so, I've found myself writing about literary characters. Shakespeare the Musical is about the life of the Bard. Aunt Georgy is about Georgina Hogarth a sister-in-law of Dickens. Agatha Crispie is a spoof on Dame Agatha, her characters and life. Saucy Pat is the life of Patrick Bronte and The Real Sherlock Holmes is about the fascinating Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Samples of my writing can be found at

I'm an Australian with Welsh and English roots and have lived in the UK from time to time. I live in Melbourne with my wife and various four-legged friends. I'm a full time writer and part time aurilophile. Just don't tell the dog.
