Author Spotlight – Robert Lee Johnston

 

 

Blurb

Tribute is a small, Australian township blessed with ancient mountainous rainforest, waterfalls, clean pristine rivers and a filthy secret. Six young lives are brought together by a church orphanage as wards of the state then groomed and sold off at a tender age. Other than the jungle, their only comfort is each other, and Stirrup, a brave blue cattle dog. The only family they have ever known.Led by Cozy, wild, defiant and found in Tribute’s rainforest as an infant, the youngsters plot the demise of their tormentor. Will the kids finally experience freedom and happiness? Or will tyranny and heartache stubbornly cling to them? Refreshingly guttural and unashamedly Australian, Tribute’s untamed growl is bold and confronting.

The twenty-first century has a visitor. He visits earth for one year each century.
On arrival, he is stripped of his power. The devil is one of us, among us.

Living down under.

Lucifer is on leave. And he’s here, in Australia.

Robert Lee Johnston 

Robert enjoys writing challenging, villainous characters and subjects. He loves the Australian humour, in good or poor taste, that is born from those places of darkness. It is his belief that the deeper, more painful the situation, the funnier and better Aussies become. 

Australia is a nation of fair fighters, with a proud sense of humour and humility. That combination is unique and rare and continues to inspire and supply him with many characters, brawlers, squealers, pelicans, cowards, galahs, absolute bloody champions and the down- trodden to choose from.
