Ron Thomas

Passionate about the melting pot of diversity that makes up Australia's history, it is of little wonder that that it creates such a rich tapestry for Ron's storytelling.

He retired from the position he had held for more than 20 years as Managing Director of Anitech, a highly successful Australian computer equipment and maintenance company, to give himself more time to write end engage in various other activities.

Though he is still a Director of the company, much of his time is spent researching suitable subjects for present and future stories.

Ron is a keen and regular participant in various sports including cycling, tennis, golf, surfing and swimming. He is particularly proud of his cycling medals won at the 2011 Adelaide Masters Games. His many and varied other interests include music and snorkelling in and around Manly and he paints landscapes for relaxation. He has written the lyrics for the musical Ballaarat, based on the events at the Eureka Stockade and two books of poetry.

But above all his greatest interest is his family, His wife Margaret, three daughters and two granddaughters keep him on his toes!

Was delighted to listen to you on Macca this morning. I read Solly's Way quite a while ago and thoroughly enjoyed. It was a tremendous success when loaned to friends who all said "what a great read". Now you can't get a compliment much better than that.! I look forward to reading the other two books in the trilogy and anything else with your name on it when they hit the book stands.
Kindest regards to both you and Margaret.
