About the Author
TONY BERRY has turned his hand to novel writing after a long career as a journalist in the UK and Australia, most recently as a sub-editor since 1990 with the Sunday Herald, the Sun and on the news desk at the Herald Sun.
His experience has embraced everything from local weekly newspapers to metropolitan dailies, and from trade and industrial journals to mass market magazines and high quality lifestyle publications.
As a writer, Tony has travelled all over the world reporting for tourism industry newspapers and later in his role as travel editor for newspapers including the Adelaide Advertiser, Sunday Observer and The Age. He has also contributed chapters and sections to international travel guides.
A long-time fan of the crime writing genre, Tony has now written his first novel, Done Deal, and is editing and revising a sequel. Most of this writing has been undertaken while studying for a Diploma of Professional Writing at Melbourne CAE where his work has been encouragingly appraised and workshopped.
Done Deal was short-listed for the 2007 NSW Genre Fiction Award.
