Osborn, Richard

I spent thirty years in the advertising industry with Australia's largest advertising agency, George Patterson, in Sydney and throughout Asia. Since retirement I have written several (non crime) books including Milli the Magpie and the Penguin Guide to Retirement Hotspots. I also paint abstract artworks combining oils and airbrushing. I have three children and five grand children and live in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs with Judy, my partner of over twelve years.

Veteran Sydney journalist Robin Adair has had a wide and colourful career at the Daily and Sunday Telegraphs, the Australian Financial Review and the ABC.  For many years he reflected on the lighter side of life in a humerous column for the Australian Woman's Weekly.  He has been a lifelong student of early colonial history, especially police, pubs, crime and punishment.  One of his ancestors was an early Sydney police superintendent; he believes another was a London judge who sent many convicts to Australia
