Bob Goodwin

Bob Goodwin was born in Nottingham, England in 1953. He moved with his parents, brother and 3 sisters to Australia in 1961 on board the Oriana. The early years were spent mainly in Taringa, Brisbane with education at Ironside State School and then Indooroopillly High School.

Most of Bob's working career has been in the area of mental health after he completed General and Psychiatric Nursing training followed by a Degree in Counselling.

This experience is reflected in much of his writing, and since 1987 he has written many short stories, short plays, one-act plays, short screen plays and feature length screenplays.

In recent years his focus has been on writing fiction novels in the thriller / suspense genre. His third novel "Max Justice" was released in 2016. His other 2 novels - "Strike Me Dead" and "The 13th Black Candle" have had some great reviews (check them out!).

Some of Bob's best ideas come late at night or first thing in the morning. He lies in bed awake developing the next chapter, plans for the next book or the next play. Some disturbing dreams and real life mental health encounter have been inspirational. This is not always so great for a good night's sleep!

His current project is the 2nd book in the Max Judd series - i.e. a sequel to "Max Justice" and is expected to be released in late 2017 or early 2018. Stay tuned!
