Steve Buster Johnson - Author Profile

After completing an HND in Electronics at Southampton (UK) and a BA in Mathematics through the Open University (London), I embarked on a forty year career in corporate infrastructure project management that took me to many countries, working for numerous organisations in both the public and private sector. I then decided to take 'time out' in order to fulfil a lifelong ambition of writing a factual novel about the Royal Flying Corps squadron in which my grandfather served during WW1.

A former keen recreational pilot and competitive rower, my hobbies (apart from research into early military aviation which takes up a lot of my time) include tennis, cycling, skiing, graphic design, photography, cars and motorcycles. With three children and three grandchildren, I live with my wife at Kynnumboon, New South Wales, Australia.

I have been a full-time writer since 2006 and have recently published my fifth book, Over the Western Front. the story of the WW1 operation of 6 Squadron Royal Air Force. My next writing project, Perception is Everything, is in the planning stage and I hope to start writing by the end of 2018. This book will be the third part of a trilogy (For God, England & Ethel being the first part and  Leaning on a Lamp Post - an autobiography - the second part). It was always my intention to write a family saga in three parts, but with each book written in a totally different style, content and narrator. Because of this, they can be read individually without any loss of integrity.

In response to reader feedback, I wrote a fictional murder / mystery story set in France during WW1, with the title, Seven Days in April. It tells the story of a Royal Air Force pilot who is involved in a suspicious death and is asked to investigate the mystery discretely for the sake of squadron morale, using his skills as an ex-detective.

A recent project was A Man of Many Letters, an ADHD self help guide (including ODD and OCD). In looking at what is currently available on the market, my book is arguably the first genuine self-help guide for sufferers (young and old alike) as it offers advice on living and winning with these conditions without having to resort to long-term counselling and / or medication.
