Contact Me

Talk to me. Love me! Send me presents. Or don’t. Either way, here is the email address at which you will find me (possibly drunk):


I try to respond to every email (especially the ones promising presents!), but it might take a while. I do have accidents quite frequently and whilst I’ve yet to lose a hand in one, it’s bound to happen sooner or later. So if you’re eagerly awaiting a response, and it’s not forthcoming, just count yourself lucky. I’m probably out shopping for jeans with a velcro fastener…

Also, this being the age of social media, I’ve gone ahead and joined the bloody lot of them! Now I can’t sleep, because my phone beeps at me every time someone in America sends me a message – which is usually about 4am Perth time… But please don’t let that stop you! The more messages you send me, the more loved I feel. And I don’t have a ‘real’ job, so it’s not like I need sleep, is it?

Here I am on:

  1. Hiya mate, have you got a new book out soon?? Only we go on holiday at the beginning of July and i was looking forwards to something funny to read? Don’t worry if not, there’s still about 7 weeks and 2 days for you to put one together so no rush. Cheers for being alive still. Regards n that, Gav (40 from Huddersfield )

  2. I really enjoyed your travel books looking forward to the next one
    I did need a good laugh

  3. HIya mate! Sorry you’re still waiting, but the good news is I’ve finally started working on something new πŸ˜‰ All I can say for now is watch this space…

  4. Hi Tony,
    I just finished your bear book and can’t wait to read the others. You have a great sense of humor and it shows in your writing. Thanks for sharing an exciting part of the world we’ll probably never get a chance to see. You made it seem as if we were right there with you digging post holes and getting new scars every day! I thank Amazon for introducing me to you and am looking forward to any and all new adventures you’d like to share. I’m looking forward to many years of happy reading.
    Your newest fan,
    Dee Fitzgerald

  5. Hi Dee!
    Thank-you so much for those kind words! I’m just amazed that because of people like you buying my books from Amazon, I now get to be a full-time writer! I never expected that πŸ˜‰ I’m working on a new travel book right now – number 7 in the whole series – and hopefully I’ll keep traveling and writing about my adventures for a good while yet.
    Hope you’re staying safe!
    Best wishes,

  6. Love your books. Makes me wish I had kept journals of travels my husband and I did. We have had so many odd adventures I can relate to many of yours ( except the drinking- we aren’t drinkers). Unfortunately, my husband got cancer and died so now it’s just my little dog Angel and me. Question- what year is the book” Who do you think I am? “Written? I ask because you mentioned Trumps elusive tax returns and wondered if that is since he became (barf bag please) president, or before. I have now read all your travel related books – sorry I am not into science fiction, and loved them all. And Thailand book was not rubbish. I liked it. Does that mean. I have bad taste? Hugs, from more than 6 feet so safe.

  7. Hi Sharon! Yeah, journals are great things to have – I seem to have terrible luck with mine though, as most of them got lost or stolen over the years! I had to rely on what Roo and Gill had written for some of my ‘research’! The acting book was my most recent one, even though it was a sort of prequel about my uni years, it was written after Trump became president – I remember because we were in the States, on a train from Chicago to San Fransisco on the day he won the election! Man, there were some fights on that train!
    Glad you enjoyed the Thailand book! I like it too, but then I’m biased πŸ˜‰
    Hope you’re well! Stay safe!
    Best wishes,

  8. Thank you for making me literally laugh out loud…sometimes unfortunately while alone in a bar making me look completely deranged. I am a total princess who NEVER would sleep in a hostel or really anywhere without my own bathroom, but I love your and Roo’s sense of adventure. I think she is literally the coolest chick on the planet because I would have killed you by page two!! Keep up the good work and think about charging for your books because this is the first Kindle Unlimited book I have wished I paid for! And yes, I am the last person on the earth with an aol email address…badge of honor.

  9. Hi Shelly!
    Yeah, I’m not the easiest to live with, but Roo spends most of her time trying to keep me alive! So I guess I’m the lucky one, as without her I probably wouldn’t have survived one book, let alone six!
    I also have an AOL email address, weirdly… now I feel honoured πŸ˜‰
    As for the Kindle Unlimited, don’t feel bad – I DO get paid! In fact, I make as much from a KU borrow as I do from a sale, because we are paid by how many pages get read, and my books are so damn long! Feel free to burn through the lot of ’em, and I’ll take Roo out for dinner on the proceeds! (Well, take her out for a milkshake, at any rate)

  10. Hi Tony,

    So glad to hear that you do make a profit on your books…I can read guilt free! So funny that you are my aol soulmate and feel free to look me up if you and Roo are ever in Seattle. You would be welcome to crash in the spare room and I can give you lots of great cheap eats recommendations. Just make sure to give me enough notice so I can Tony proof the house….hahaha!

  11. Ha ha! Will do… although I should probably warn you, nothing is ever FULLY Tony proof… πŸ˜‰

  12. Just read The Bear ate my Pants. HILARIOUS. I quite love traveling but prefer a comfy king bed, fluffy towels and a pool. I am not brave like you but I do LOVE animals and appreciate the sacrifices that volunteers make. I had no idea that these refuges existed and I love how your writing educates as well as entertains. I felt like you were talking to me which is my favorite style of writing to read. I am set to order the rest of your books on my kindle and can’t wait to live vicariously through your travels. Thanks for writing about your adventures and fir being SO REAL. ?

  13. Hi Cathy! Thank-you so much! I’m so glad you’re enjoying the books! I’ve recently started appreciating a slightly ‘nicer’ version of travel, doing a few AirBnBs – some of them even come with towels…
    There are animal refuges all over the world – I pretty much guarantee there’ll be one in your area. And most of them are happy to take visitors, show you around etc – I visited a few in the US, and in all sorts of countries like Thailand and Borneo. So you don’t need to get down and dirty in the mud to see what they’re doing, and come face to face with some amazing animals πŸ˜‰ It’s funny – I set out to write my first book hoping to inspire people to travel, but for some reason I seem to be having the opposite effect! Anyway, I really hope you enjoy the rest ofmy books – less animal antics (though always a few!), but lots more crazy adventures all over the place. Let me know what you think, eh!
    Best wishes,

  14. Where is β€œWarden’s Fate”? It’s supposed to be on Amazon but, it’s not.

  15. Hi Tony
    Have just finish the last of your travel books. I have read nothing else as I use up my Amazon KU freebie. Glad to hear you get paid as was feeling slightly guilty. Phew!
    I have absolutely loved every moment, sad and funny. Not many writers make me laugh out loud, so you are up there with Spike Milligan. Now have to put up with the wife giggling in bed as have passed books on.
    It has been wonderful to travel vicariously with you. I am a bit old and decrepid to undertake such lunacy these days, but spent many years enjoying Peru. Mostly in Lima where I taught, but managed a few trips to jungle and other parts.
    Keep up the great work. Don’t rush the next book, I must try to read someone else’s work!
    I really enjoyed looking through the wonderful photos, it is good of you to share so freely such personal events like your magical wedding!
    Also watched the TV prog, you were properly stitched up. So much for reality tv!
    All the best to you and 2 Roo 2!

    Blessings (non religious!)

  16. Hi Tim!
    I’m glad you enjoyed the books! I hope your wife doesn’t keep you up laughing, but you probably did the same to her, so I guess that’s only fair!
    I never managed to get to Peru, which is a real shame as it’s probably the one place I want to go more than anywhere else in the world. I’m still hoping we’ll get there, but it’ll have to wait until this damn virus is done and dusted. KU is great, everyone wins! I even got Roo a subscription to it, as she reads like a book a week and it gets expensive otherwise! If you’re looking for other books similar to mine, my faves are George Mahood’s memoirs, starting with ‘Free Country’ – he released a new one about being a wedding photographer a while back, which was hilarious πŸ˜‰
    Thanks for getting in touch mate!
    Best wishes,

  17. G’day Tony,
    Mate you, in my humble opinion, were born an Aussie in a Pom’s body. Your self deprecating humour, clearly shown in your writings, is so β€œAussie like”, it’s not funny. It actually is, but you get my drift. Fair dinkum, it is not possible to complete one of your books, without purchasing the next one. I hope you keep coming for decades. Up with more books, I mean.
    Cheers mate,

  18. Hi Paul, ha ha! Cheers mate!
    I once told my dad that people appreciated my ‘self depreciating’ sense of humour, he cracked for for about ten minutes before explaining that I probably meant ‘self-deprecating’… So, you know, there’s a fine line between being humble, and just being crap. I think I’m wobbling alone that like I’m trying to prove to the cops I’m not drunk…
    But don’t worry, I’ll keep writing. Gotta eat somehow, eh πŸ˜‰
    Cheers for getting in touch, mate!
    Best wishes,

  19. Hi just had my English wife, Hilary Brewster give your book (Kamikaze etc) for Christmas. I’m enjoying it …up to Road Trip. I’m born n bred Aussie…born in Southern Cross. Was a teacher in Western Australia, UK and Bangladesh. Now live in Haverhill, Suffolk….enjoying cool Christmas. Bye for now Graeme Gee. I’m writing short stories about Australia ( my ancestors came to the Swan River in 1829) I came to see Hilary cause we played online scrabble ( 2010) married her 2012. Great In’tit.

  20. Hiya mate! Yeah, it’s strange how things work out… I only met Roo because she was Gill’s best friend from Camp America… and Gill only went to Camp America because I basically bullied her into it! How the world works, eh πŸ˜‰
    Hope you’re enjoying the cool weather and get to see some snow! Sometimes I’d rather be there, sometimes here. Right now, it’s 40 degrees outside, I’d give anything for a bit of rain and the chance to feel a cold breeze. The grass is almost always greener… except in Oz, where it’s only green for about half an hour in the middle of July πŸ˜‰
    Hope you’re well mate, and not struggling too much with the lockdowns over there!
    Merry Christmas!

  21. Hi Vic! I decided it wouldn’t be fair to put up a photo of her, especially after I talked so intimately about her in the book. You’ll just have to picture her; a typical, olive-skinned South American beauty, with long, straight black hair and an exotic mystique that drove me crazy! Although, maybe some of that is because I had no idea what she was saying half the time… πŸ˜‰

  22. Hey Tony! Just finished reading Don’t You Know Who I Am. I turned on some music to drown my sadness at not having more of your adventures on hand. Whaddya know. It was Counting Crows singing Mr Jones. Totally about you! Put new meaning into an old fave. I can’t keep playing it over and over again so you are gonna need to go somewhere and write about it.. More please!

  23. Hi Bonnie!
    I never really thought about it before, but there is a certain sense of meaning to that song that could apply to me. Perhaps to a younger, eternally questing, lonelier me… As for more adventures, the next one is in production – I just have this tiny little baby-shaped bundle to get a handle on first, and then I’ll be cranking out the pages again. And I’m sure there’l be plenty more adventures afoot once our baby daughter is old enough to travel.. πŸ˜‰

  24. Love love love your books! ????I’m a home body and have to much anxiety to go far so I live vicariously through your travels! And it’s much safer for me as I’m sure I’d be dead on the first trip since I’m a walking accident! ?

  25. Hi Rachel!
    Lovely to hear from you! I’m glad you’re enjoying the books! I’m a walking accident too, which is lucky otherwise I’d never have anything to write about! But it would definitely be safer for me to stay at home. I just can’t help myself, though! After all this lockdown I’m itching to get away again!
    Hope you’re well!
    Best wishes,

  26. Ha ha! I think that’s a ‘feature’ of my rather crappy and decrepit website… if I were a bit more clever I’d have figured out how to make it work with emojis. Sadly, that’s a bit beyond my skillset πŸ˜‰

  27. Hi Tony,

    I found your Wardens series of books and have read the first 3 and half way through book 4, they are a wonderful set of books and I am throughly enjoying them. I am looking for book 5 Wardens fate and can only see it available on kindle as well as your books from then on like the Kyra spin off books and the start of the Legacy series. Is this the only way to read them?

  28. Hi John! I just sent you an email! Sorry to say, there isn’t a paperback of book 5 just yet, I completely forgot to make one! I’ll get onto it asap, and let you know when it’s ready πŸ˜‰
    Cheers mate!
