A true tale of man’s rags to riches life—not in the traditionally inferred ‘Cinderella’ sense, yet maybe not too far from it.
Gerard discovers how life can pluck a man from one situation and dropped into another—as if sucked up by a tsunami and tossed on to the beach of a new world.
In England’s mid-eighteenth century, the emerging industrial revolution catapults a man out of a world of serfdom into social London. Archival records cannot lie..

About The Author
A retired journalist, Kev spent many years touring the world writing travel articles for airline magazines. His many adventures and misadventures became the bases for his several Action/Adventure novels. As a student of Australia’s founding as a convict settlement, Kev’s six novels on that unique history, including the demise of the Aboriginal Dreamtime, are now legendary.
He is well qualified to write such intensive histories, being a Past President of the First Fleet Fellowship, Past Secretary of The Descendants of Convicts Inc. For his work during Australia’s Bicentenary in 1988, he was created Honorary Life Member of The Regiment of Redcoat Descendants. Several biographies of significant people have also come from Kev’s busy pen.
Three works have been finalists in the International EPIC Awards and all twenty novels have been awarded by professional reviewers, either 5 Stars or 5+ or 5++ Stars. All works are available in Paperback or eBook. Kev is twice married and now enjoys single life, writing on his experiences and studies, relaxing in the Himalayan foothills of exotic Thailand.
