Around The Grounds | Magic moments from the life of a sports broadcaster 2018-03-19 09-17-27.jpg

Peter Newlinds worked for ABC Radio Grandstand for 18 years through the 1990s and 2000s. His name and voice will be familiar to cricket followers around Australia, and also to the followers of many of the various sports the ABC has covered over the years. In Around the Grounds, Peter shares memories and insights that will fire sparks of nostalgia in every Australian sporting enthusiast. From teenage years working inside the grand scoreboard of the SCG, to the pressure of auditioning for the ABC in front of a childhood hero, and then through a long career with the national broadcaster. It’s the story of the sporting fan who manages to live out the ultimate sporting fantasy: working as a commentator with one of the world’s great sporting broadcasters. Co-written with David Brewster. Published August 2018 and widely available.

Scattered Pearls FINAL_800px.jpg

Scattered Pearls opens in pre-revolutionary Iran, where Sohila Zanjani grew up under the threat of violence, intimidation and control at the hands of her father. Resolving never to tread in the footsteps of her mother and her grandmother, both survivors of domestic abuse, Sohila tried to find a new life for herself on the other side of the world. But to her horror she discovered that living with her father had been gentle in comparison to the reality of her new married life. Spanning more than a hundred years, Scattered Pearls tells the true stories of Sohila, her mother and her grandmother, and the injustice and abuse meted out by the men in their lives. It is a story of cultural misogyny in both Iran and Australia, and of an ongoing search for a loving, equal relationship. Co-written with David Brewster. Published April 2016; Second edition published April 2017.

Based in Melbourne, Australia, but working anywhere, David provides a high-quality writing service to organisations and their executives, and to individuals with a story to tell.

Talk about really grasping a thought and translating it into the most elegant and simple writing – that is David Brewster. David has been my secret weapon in converting a dream into reality, enabling my ‘English as a second language’ to go unnoticed. I feel honoured to have such a talented writer working with me.

I can’t believe I’ve got a book published so quickly. From rough draft to fabulous finished product in just a few weeks. I just loved the way you managed my recent book project taking me through every stage. You made self-publishing painless and super-easy. Best of all, I’ve got a super product in my hand ready-to-go to my market. A huge thank you for a job well done.
