    About Colin Falconer


    1. I was 18 years old, I d just left school and got a job in London, working in an insurance company I was working inside in an office My mother thought that was like being CEO of Shell Oil I was late one morning, I took a short cut through the church yard to the station to catch my train I d just finished reading The Sun Also Rises the night before and here I was looking at all these gravestones, I remember thinking Gee, we re not here very long Better make it count So I went home, told my mother I was quitting my job and going to Morocco She damned near fainted After travelling through Spain and Africa, Colin hitch hiked across Europe to Sweden to visit a girlfriend he d met the year before on a football tour When he finally got back home, he was still restless After failing to make the grade as a professional football player, he travelled around Asia his experiences in Bangkok and India later inspired his thriller VENOM, and his adventures in the jungles of the Golden Triangle of Burma and Laos were also filed away for later, the basis of his OPIUM series about the underworld drug trade.He emigrated to Australia where he helped a mate establish a new advertising agency We could only afford this derelict building for an office Once we were pitching to a client during a thunderstorm and the roof flooded A piece of the ceiling fell down and just missed his head Fortunately he had a sense of humour We got the account After a couple of years we were doing much better We could even afford to pay ourselves a wage But I really wanted to be a writer, not a copywriter When I told my mate I was leaving to try my luck in the Big Smoke, he offered me 40% of the business It was 40% of nothing at the time I saw him a couple of years ago, and he d just sold the agency for twenty million dollars I worked out what 40% of that was on a pocket calculator It s quite a lot of money, apparently Colin went to Sydney and worked in TV and radio and freelanced for many of Australia s leading newspapers and magazines But he got his dream, publishing over a dozen novels in the UK and US and having his work sold into translation in Brazil, Belgium, the Czech republic, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Korea, Mexico, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Spain and Turkey.He lived for many years in the beautiful Margaret River region in WA, and helped raise two beautiful daughters with his late wife, Helen While writing, he also worked in the volunteer ambulance service I d be at my desk typing, then thirty minutes later I might be crawling into an overturned car or running along a beach with the oxygen for a near drowning It was an interesting time His marriage ended in tragic circumstances, a story he has told in The Naked Husband, and its non fiction sequel, The Year We Seized the Day, written with a writing partner, Elizabeth Best.He travels regularly to research his novels and his quest for authenticity has led him to run with the bulls in Pamplona, pursue tornadoes across Oklahoma and black witches across Mexico, go cage shark diving in South Africa and get tear gassed in a riot in La Paz He was actually trying to cycle down the Death Road In the end he had to abandon the attempt and take the bus down He also completed a nine hundred kilometre walk of the camino in Spain.A few years ago he stopped writing I suddenly found I couldn t do it any It was after The Year We Seized the Day I was ridden with guilt and I remember standing on a beach in Thailand late one night, and I said to God Okay I ve had enough now A week later I was in a Thai hospital, only time in my whole life I ve ever been sick, I d got some sort of tropical infection and I was close to multiple organ failure I remember praying again that s twice in one year Hey I didn t know you were listening, Big Guy I didn t mean it I have two girls to look out for

    1. This was one of the best books i read so far. Brilliant. Love the female characters: dominant and sexy. Every story was really interesting. The only thing i'm quite unsatisfied about is the ending. There was a mix of dynamic scenes and when you really wanted to see what happens, the narrator would introduce another storyline, quite static. Still a really great book.

    2. Drsná vizáž deväťdesiatych rokov, prenasledujúca minulosť, Čína plná bieleho prášku - na rozdávanie, sekáčik na ľad ako hlavná kulisa a vražedné komentáre v oddelení závažných zločinov. Taaak, vo tom to je, přátelé.
