Steve Elliott is an exploration geologist with over forty years experience exploring in Australia, United States of America, Canada, Malaysia, Brazil, South Africa, Zimbabwe and Madagascar. Steve is an inveterate reader consuming on average two to three books weekly, the books including fiction thrillers, science, biography and history. In addition to reading Steve is also a prolific writer although as of yet only two books have made it to print, “Desert Dreaming” and “Bullshit”. Steve lives in Perth, Western Australia with his wife Sally, dog ‘Florence’ and cat ‘Smudge’. Steve loves the ‘bush’, as it is known in Australia, particularly the desert regions and goes out to camp in said bush at any opportunity, both to observe the bush and its denizens and to prospect. Steves family have a long association with Australia and are proud of their lineage, even the convict forebears! Steve hopes that you will enjoy this work and makes no apologies for making the hero of the story a geologist, of which Steve is one.
