“It’s a lot of hard work, but it’s also really enjoyable and rewarding,” said Mr Boyd.

Mr Boyd has been writing for nearly 20 years, mainly short stories, until his first book Black Gold was published in 2007.

His two newest books – Bags Full and Escapees from the Attic – both took nearly 18 months to write.

“Bags Full is set in a tiny outback town about 100 kilometres from Broken Hill,” Mr Boyd said.

“The story deals with the town’s fight to exist during a terrible drought after a mysterious stranger rode through the town years before.”

“The name Lasseter of the gold reef fame was mentioned in passing.”

“Some townspeople claimed he had four saddlebags on a pack horse full of what looked like ‘yellow rocks’.”

“The rider heads off to Broken Hill but is found dead halfway with, according to the police, no suspicious circumstances and no saddlebags.”

According to Mr Boyd, readers of his second book, Escape from the Attic, will “get a good laugh out of this one.”

Mr Boyd will host a book signing for Bags Full at the Tea Gardens Hotel Silver Dolphin Room on Saturday 18 July from 11am to 1pm.

Both books will be on sale at the signing – Bags Full for $20, and Escapees from the Attic for $10 – and will also be available for purchase at Gallery in the Gardens in Tea Gardens.
