Books By Brian

About Brian Robertson

I am an old new writer. By that I mean I have been writing books only since I retired in 1998. Most of the books I have produced I have co-authored. So where I say I have produced or written a book don’t take it too literally.

Writing keeps me busy and like all writers I want to sell my books but I find all the technicalities associated with tweeting, blogging and face booking etc. a bit of a chore. But I will try harder.

At first I only wrote books for schools in the South Pacific for the publisher Pearson Australia, then in 2012 David Barrett and I published Digger’s Story, his biography. More recently Ron Smallwood and I wrote Riotous Retirement, about life in a retirement village. A year ago Ron and I also wrote the content for a children’s book My Australia. At present I am writing a memoir about my time in the Scottish regiment the Gordon Highlanders titled A Gordon for Me. Do you know the song of the same name? Tune in here.

I have three sites under booksbybrian.com.au including a page for A Gordon for Me. This is because I cannot have a site dedicated to one writing genre, Military, Humour, Children’s books or Science because I write in all these genres and perhaps I might write on others in the future.

I have the same problems as all writers who are not in the famous top 0.5% of the industry. I find it really hard to get published. However I have been lucky and had some success in that area with Digger’s Story. I recruited a friend of mine (Agneau Press) to publish Riotous Retirement, so I have been down the self-publishing route also.

I live in Queensland, Australia and at present I am looking for a Scottish, or at least a British publisher for A Gordon for Me because it's unlikely an Australian publisher will be interested.

I am always available through good old fashioned email at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Anyhow I will keep at it on this new combined site where all my book information has been put together by the experts at Webilicious.
