“Reach for the Moon and You May Touch the Stars”
-Sid De Beer
For some 30 years I have wanted to write a novel and had a basic idea of what I was hoping to achieve, however the demands of my career as a General Manager of a company in Australia, meant that my priority was to successfully build a profitable company for the shareholders.
The genre is a novel of fiction.
Writing a novel takes time, a lot of thought, creativity, imagination, focus and commitment.
The novel is about an exceptionally talented student whose academic achievements came to the attention of the CIA’s station chief in Paris, France.
Recruited, he became a killer in the line of duty.
Having retired some 4 years ago, I found that I had a lot of time on my hands and needed a new challenge.
Certainly was challenging to sit and create a story that I hope you will enjoy.
COVID 19 happened early in 2020 and the lockdown in Victoria, Australia gave me the ideal opportunity to get started.
The novel took close to a year to complete.
