Gerry Burke’s writing credentials were formulated during his time as an advertising copywriter with a number of international agencies. His output was prolific, especially in the category of humor, and it is no coincidence his books are imaginative and satirical.
The author’s career in advertising took him to Britain, U.S.A., Hong Kong, Singapore and a number of Australian cities, and he has previously called on his memories to provide locations for his stories. If Paddy Pest had his way, all his locations would be exotic, but the author keeps those junkets for himself. President Gus Snoodle needs the crumpled crusader in America and that’s where he is for this thrilling page turner.
The Snoodle Contract is Gerry’s 8th. published volume and the sixth to feature the irascible investigator, Paddy Pest. In 2011, 2012 and 2015, the author was a finalist in the USA Best Book Awards and in 2014 he won an IPPY bronze medal for best fiction in Australia and New Zealand.
Gerry is single and lives in Melbourne, Australia, where he is a prominent racehorse owner and breeder.
