Funny, touching, sad, with a light of hope at the end of the tunnel There are thousands of working actors in this country and only a handful will ever make it as rich and famous International Stars. This story is not about one of the handful. This is the tragicomedy memoir of a Stage and Television star of the 70’s and 80’s who is forced to abandon his career when his beloved wife, Marie, suffers a massive stroke which leaves her physically disabled. As her full time carer and with approaching old age he reviews their life together and resorts to his sense of humor and writing to enable him to cope with the restrictions of his new found, unexpected way of life and to satisfy his driving creative inclinations. The story reveals the author's comic reaction to his career and encroaching old age intertwined with a touching love story that eventually questions his spiritual beliefs and makes him into the man he has become. As he says, “Not a trip for the faint hearted.”

About the Author:

Bryon Williams, ex-stage and television actor, script writer, producer, director, and recently turned novelist, is now settled on the beautiful Gold Coast of Queensland, Australia. Two of his previous novels, The Grumpy Old Withered of Oz, a comedic, semi-autobiographical book about the frustrations of ageing and life as his wife’s carer in the not-so-fast lane of the Zzzzzzzzz Generation, and The Twilight Escort Agency, an hilarious and bawdy account of a mythical escort agency for the ‘more mature’ client, have enjoyed very positive independent reader response, as has his third novel, the whimsical comedy crime-fantasy, ideal for cat lovers, Code Name: Millicent – The Cat Intelligence Agent Who Came Out of the Cold. The Tourist from the Light, an intriguing paranormal romance with an underlying theme of a thought- provoking alternative spiritual philosophy, followed. His fifth novel, The Burning Boy, is an exciting action/crime page turner based on the horrors that haunt an ex-Vietnam War cameraman who returns to Australia in the mid seventies and becomes inadvertently involved in a sophisticated and lethal people-smuggling racket. Bryon then turned to a murder mystery with a difference in his, The Reluctant Psychic, and, The Psychic Spy. With the heart breaking loss of his wife he has now penned his autobiographical memoir, the tragicomedy, A Light at the End.
