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.

Where Am I At?

I had no idea what kind of a minefield I was stepping into when I decided to self publish this book. I'm beginning to understand why there are coffee shops of experts who usually handle all these jobs in the big publishing companies.

I'm waiting to hear back from my good friend, Karen, who is casting a critical eye over my work. Can't wait to hear how bad it was so I can begin a rewrite. Not sure about other writers, but I enjoy re-writing my work. Getting the ideas down on paper in the first place is the hard part.

Meanwhile, my good wife, Tracey, and I are embarking on another self publish book project - how to raise a large family on a tiny budget. Warning! Once you get started on this stuff, it's hard to stop.

Cheers !

My brother has pointed me towards oDesk for some editing options. They outsource things like graphic designing, bookkeeping and software design.
