About the Author

Aug 06, 2012

Paul Tapp, born in 1945, is an Australian award-winning broadcast investigative journalist, whose work in retirement is mainly non-fiction. One such works, described as 'forensic journalism' by prosecutor, John Agius QC, was central to a Commission of Inquiry into the police killing of a fellow Vietnam Veteran. Tapp uses these skills to flesh out his characters and give them reality-perspective. His early years in a mining hamlet with bush horses, hawk-traps and hunting with dogs, has influenced his first major works in fiction, his style in writing true to syntax construction.
