About Me

My photo

Bruce Devereaux is one of the nicest people he knows. When not at work he enjoys reading, writing, hiding from his children and not changing nappies.


His career, and if we used the term any more loosely an e might fall out, has included a gardener, a personal lender, a console operator, a stop/go man (not as big a bludge as you might think but great if you’re into sunburn, abuse and varicose veins), a cleaner of banks and pubs and, for a very brief period, a door to door salesman (until the last door he knocked on was answered by a very scary woman with tremendously hairy legs).


Bruce Devereaux currently works as a forty-five-year-old award winning customer service officer (glass statuette available upon request) for the Bank of Queensland and as a very casual employee for Corrective Services. He likes to believe he excels at both but then he has always been prone to exaggeration.


His favourite colour is green, with a picture of Dame Nellie Melba on one side and General Sir John Monash on the other. His favourite flower is self-raising.

 If you see him around town, call his wife immediately - he's probably snuck out and left her alone with all the kids.

This Little Piggy

Got a price on a stall at a local market in Gympie - $12 for 4m by 6m (room enough for a car/gazebo/patio furniture). It does seem, however, that my pricings might be a little out regards other, more urban areas. A girl at work says she had a stall at an organic market in Brisbane and it cost her $80.

So by those pricings I'll need to sell an extra 8 books each market just to cover the cost of the stall (then petrol, wear'n'tear).

It's still gotta be worth a try, right? I'm going to market. Oink! Oink!
