Author Profile

G. L. Keady
I was born in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney, Australia in 1951. I am an accomplished and qualified writer, film producer, film director, composer and musician with a large range of credits in film, television, sound recordings and songs. I have created original programming, and successfully sold my own work around the world. In the early 1980s I was a record producer of heavy metal bands in Australian and the UK. I owned an artist management company, an independent record label and a music publishing company. In 1984 I began writing, producing and directing music videos for my artists, this led to me producing cinema short films and then writing a feature film. In 1988 I wrote, directed and music directed the award winning Australian science fiction, heavy metal musical feature film ‘SONS OF STEEL’. In 1992 the University of New South Wales Centre for South Pacific Studies awarded me an Associate Aesthetics & Visual Literacy accreditation for the screenplay ‘SONS OF STEEL’, because of its contribution to the cessation of French nuclear testing in the Pacific. During 1992 I moved from Australia to South East Asia where I produced records, music videos, animation, and television. In 2007 as CEO of a production house in the Philippines I wrote, directed and produced the 52 episode international science fiction comedy television series ‘P-MAX’. After returning to Australia in 2008, I graduated Swinburne University a Master of Arts (writing). I have been a professional in the creative arts right through the vibrant times of the 70s and the 80s, and I had the haircuts to match. I now write books in which my characters have the haircuts. I have lived in Hong Kong, Singapore, Philippines, UK, USA, Brazil and Chile, and troweled the dens of iniquity and the pool halls of life. This has provided me as an author a rich canvas of life experiences from which to draw my stories and characters. I currently have four books in publication. Two under the pen name CANON DOYLE, published by New Pulp Press, both hard-boiled detective pulp fiction yarns in series: ‘SUICIDE BLONDE’ and ‘LEG MAN’. Then under G. L KEADY I have a paranormal crime fiction thriller DREAMRAIDERS (IngramSpark), and the first of a science fiction anthology SONS OF STEEL Book 1 (Filament UK), the expanded story of my 1988 movie SONS OF STEEL, which this summer will be released for the first time in the USA on the cult/campus cinema circuit, and then world-wide on DVD. The launch of SONS OF STEEL BOOK 1, will be held March 21st, 2019, at the London Director’s Institute.

About: Steve Catto is an old man, or at least that's what it says on his birth certificate. He was born in Yorkshire, but his parents took him to Australia when he was six years old and he grew up there, sometimes racing cars across the desert.

He was never very good at school, but the one thing he did learn was how to learn, and he started writing programs for the computer at the local university, much to the disdain of his teachers who told him that he would ‘never make a living out of that rubbish'. In his late teens he returned to the UK, and his parents followed him – which wasn't what he wanted because he was hoping to get away from them. His first proper job was in the computer department of an infamous Oxford publishing company, and he subsequently went on to write software for electricity control systems, and simulators for the military. He started to fly gliders and wrote programs to analyse the data from aircraft flight recorders, where he also learned to fly, and crash, lots of other types of aircraft as well – which was the best part of the job. At various times in his career he has also lived and worked in France, Switzerland, and Canada, and he now lives in Scotland. Since appearing in school plays as a child he has performed almost continuously on the amateur stage, and spent a few years scuba diving. These two things have nothing to do with each other. In terms of his pedigree as an author he has written many technical manuals and filled in countless timesheets, so is well versed in the art of conjuring up works of fiction, however he has never written a novel before, especially not one that involves a blonde girl and a man with a bow and arrow, but he did once spend three weeks working in a factory that made handles for buckets.
