Author … journalist … screenwriter … whatever…

 


BOOKS

Jimmy Thomson was only a teenager when he decided he wanted to to write entertaining fiction.

More than a dozen NON-fiction books later he finally achieved his ambition in 2018 with the publication of his two crime novels Perfect Criminals and Tunnel Vision. 

Combining his passion for crime stories and his innate sense of humour Perfect Criminals and Tunnel Vision have been described as Australia’s answer to Carl Hiaasen.

Read all about them HERE.

 


TRAVEL

Considering he hadn’t set foot on an aeroplane before he was 30, Jimmy has more than made up for it, racking up the air miles since.

As a traveller, travel writer and a travel guide, in the intervening decades he’s been collecting passport stamps from Mexico to the Marquesas, including, especially, Vietnam.

You’ll find links to many of his adventures HERE.


TELEVISION

rainshadowHaving created or co-created threeStepahie Waring in Crash Palace TV drama series, and having been nominated three times for  sitcom writing awards, Jimmy is nothing if not versatile.

Nowadays he prefers to write about the backstage shenanigans of TV and movie production in his novels.

But you can catch up with his screen efforts HERE.


APARTMENT LIVING

About 18 years ago Jimmy and his partner Sue bought a new apartment and had a truly hellish time with corrupt committee members and building managers, rapacious developers,  attack-dog lawyers and nasty neighbours.

Their saving grace was that they were both authors and journalists and decided to write a book about it to warn other people about the pitfalls.

That book was Apartment Living and the rest is history … which you can read HERE.
