About this title


Driftwood is a poetic look at the world, covering the span of a lifetime from birth in war torn London to retirement on a small island in Moreton Bay, on Queensland's east coast and the influences of nature upon its author. Robert has enjoyed an interesting broadcasting career in Australia and New Zealand but all through it, he has been followed by poetry that both stimulates and exhilarates. "Driftwood-Another Voice" is about whispers we all hear in our minds, that urge us to do and see things in a different light. It is about being able to listen to your 'positive voice' and value it because, like driftwood, it can be washed up on a beach one day and gone on the next high tide. Like driftwood, Robert's poems take us to places around the world and we end up on some unusual beaches. We dance with sparkling streams and even meet some of his unusual spectres but always there are the trees and birds, beaches and mountains. Driftwood is a unique book for people who have a passion for the natural world. Driftwood-The Other Voice, reveals something within all of us, if only we can learn to listen.

About the Author:

From a young age, Robert studied drama in New Zealand. On holiday to Britain, he met television actor and writer Eric Sykes who convinced Robert his voice is suited for radio and so followed a long and distinguished career in radio and television, culminating in the Queen's Service Medal, for services to public broadcasting and conservation in New Zealand. For many years on the Board of Trustees with the World Wildlife Fund (NZ) he was awarded a Fellowship and life membership. He is currently Honorary Vice President of the 290 Foundation, dedicated to preserving the history of the Confederate navy. Robert has worked for commercial and non-commercial stations in New Zealand, Western Australia and Queensland, receiving several awards for program excellence, he particularly liked radio documentary work and became skilled at research and writing. For 15 years Robert tutored at a multicultural radio station in Brisbane. With a keen interest in the American Civil War, he is editor of The Bugle International for the American Civil War Round Table Queensland. Robert continues a long interest in writing, with a particular passion for poetry and the study of birdlife. His work with friend Don Merton, contributed to saving a near extinct black robin in New Zealand. An enthusiastic supporter of Maori culture, while not a Maori, he claims to be Pakeha (European) on the outside but Maori on the inside. Robert retired to an island in Moreton Bay, Queensland, island life gives him more time to develop his studies and interests.
