Interviewing Author Tony Squire

  1. Tell me about your self?  I am 58 years old.  I live in Kilcoy which is a small country town in Queensland, Australia, with my wife Sheila.  We work in and run our own gardening business, which in the climate here is wonderful. 2.What are your favorite books to read?  I enjoy military history, mainly non fiction books but I have delved in to some semi fiction/non fiction novels.  My favourite author is Bernard Cornwell and I love his books about Sharpe, Uhtred and the Starbuck Chronicles, where he creates a character and slots them in to real history.  At the moment I am reading a lot of books by Peter Fitzsimons who, again, writes about history. 3. When did you decide you were going to write a book?  I decided when I was about 12 years old but never got round to it until about 3 years ago. 4. How did you come up with the name of your book?  My character at the moment is Buckley, who is a Yowie.  A Yowie is Australia’s Bigfoot and in my town of Kilcoy, there is a statue of a Yowie
