About the Author

A Michael Blaire was born in Cowboy Country-Townsville, but also calls Stanthorpe, West End and Ipswich home. He has a very diverse CV-from fruit picking to factories, laboratories to offices. He was a public servant for 30 years, retiring from an executive position.

“I’ve had an interesting life,” he says, “and along the way, I’ve accumulated some useful knowledge. This has given me some life experience to draw on for my writing.”

Blaire’s core genre is Australian historical fiction, and his writing to date covers from the 16th Century to today. The first of his Longtail series of novels--Jimmy Longtail-An Australian Epic, set from 1852 to the late 1880s, has been published, and he’s working on the 2nd book—Longtail 2-Great is the Guilt. This part 2 in the series, covers from 1890 to 1919.

Blaire also writes short stories, poetry and flash fiction. His drabbles (micro-fiction) feature in an anthology of Ipswich authors-Sideshow Alley.
