Author Bio

Will Spokes recently retired after a lifetime in the commercial radio and insurance industries. He has a sharp sense of humour and an ever-inquisitive mind. His three grandchildren are his greatest joy in life and his wife his greatest supporter.

Will has always enjoyed literature of all genres and some of his happiest memories involve a good book, a glass of wine and a warming fire. Sustained illness and partial loss of mobility gave him the opportunity to take up writing full time and develop some of the stories that had been floating about in his head.

Will writes stories that demonstrate his flair for drama, peppered with his laconic humour and extensive research. Will enjoys quality popular writing as well as the classics. Life is too short to drink poor wine and read poor writing.

Early pioneers settling at opposite ends of the Great South Land strive in the face of overwhelming environmental encounters, battling against everything the merciless climate of a fledging nation can throw at them.

The Parnhams, a blue blood family, settle in the lush farmlands east of the burgeoning city of Sydney and thrive on the fleece of their prize merino flock, ensuring generations of wealth, success and growing status.

In the stifling heat of outback Queensland, the Cuthbertsons are confronted with drought, choking dust and the tyranny of distance, achieving success and the respect of their community.

The commencement of World War II ultimately interferes with the respective lives of both the Parnham and Cuthbertson families. Ripples are set in motion that cause the families to question their morals and their place in society, ultimately threatening to bring down the government of the day.

“A work of pure historical delight for those who enjoy the fictional accounts of an author’s well-versed and well-studied intelligence in his craft… Exceptional reading!” Travis, Readalot reviewer
