After retiring to Queensland's Sunshine Coast in 2014, Gordon took in interest in researching his family. He discovered links back to the 1400's and even a distant link to the Royal Family of United Kingdom.

During his research, he discovered he had 6 relatives who fought in the Great War. He was familiar, with his relatives in the 2nd World War, but knew nothing about the men in his family who had fought in the Great War.

This research led him to write his first book "A Family That Went to War"

After he published the book he realised that this was not enough, so he settled down and commenced writing "An Australian Story - The saga of an Australian Family over two centuries"

In this he has included the stories of Australia's early settlement and of the events that made Australia and the makings of a family.

When the book sat on top of the Amazon.com bestselling list for the Kindle history of Australia and Oceania he felt that he was achieving his goals. An Australian Story remained on top of the list for 10 days.

He was amazed that he could write three books in less than 12 months, particularly as only recently he discovered that he had mild dyslexia all his life.

His third book “The Ministry Communications Unit” is pure fiction based on a fictitious movie company set up by the Government during World War 2. He based a lot of this story around the locations that surround Caloundra.

His 4th Book “Lady Ruth Bromfield” is now released opens the world of fiction to a new level.Gordon feels that this will be his greatest book with a wide area of interest.
