range of fiction and non-fiction, from romance and history to
economic and financial policy.
As an economist, he seeks to define policies amenable to
peaceful change and prosperity for all. He launched "The
Democratic Initiative for Victory Over Want (VOW)" in 2002 and
perceptively warned of the current Global Financial Crisis in his
book "America's Suicidal Statecraft" published in 2006.
Born in the small bush town of Rosewood in south-eastern
Queensland, Australia, he has had a colourful career, rich in

saintly vision that sometimes leads them to greatness.
He has written a dozen books on economics, history,
government and administration, and human behaviour.

his experience of diplomacy, its shallow self-interest and sexual

weapons fall into the wrong hands. His collection of sexy short
stories, Dirty Weekend has a special link to his book on human
conduct: The Human Mirror: The Narcissistic Imperative in Human
Behaviour. His latest novel, The Young Bug tells of a miraculous
organism that reverses the ageing process and blesses us with
He has written scores of short stories and articles on a wide
variety of subjects. One of his plays The Lovers The Outcasts recently

He is married to Heide Schulte von Bäuminghaus who is
herself a successful author, especially of the popular and highly
entertaining Diplomatic Carousel. With their daughter, Kim,
