About the Author:

John Hickman was born in March 1945 in Kensington, London, England. Carole, his wife of forty-eight years says that should make him a mature writer. Educated at private schools John worked in a bank and then worked in his father’s hotel business in Royal Tunbridge Wells. He joined the Pest Control industry based in the UK before migrating with his family to Brisbane in 1971 as ‘ten pound Poms’. They became naturalised Australians in 1973. John spent a lifetime in business specialising in pest control, fumigation, and timber preservation. In the 1990s his family farmed Javan Rusa deer. After retirement in 2003 he started to ‘smell the flowers’ and realised how most of them smelled the same. Unable to play golf, he discovered a latent passion for writing. John’s first book Reluctant Hero tells the controversial story of his dad, Bill’s, involvement in WW2. He survived as a Lancaster bomber pilot when the majority perished. Tripping Over is its sequel. Sex, Lies & Crazy People was published in 2014 and follows on from Tripping Over. G’day Down-Under is due to be published in 2015 and follows on from Sex, Lies & Crazy People. They are all true stories.
