My name is Dave Tomlinson. I’m from New Zealand and now living in Brisbane, Australia. My life passions are travel, outdoor adventure, sport and writing.
I have travelled through over 50 countries and completed several long distance hikes including the epic Bibbulmun Track in Western Australia and Camino de Santiago in Spain. After writing the budget travel guide ‘Travel Unravelled’ I then documented my travel stories in ‘Around the World in 80 Tales’. I blog about my travel and assist other travellers on my Step Ahead Travel website. It’s my dream to eventually travel 100 countries and go to every continent on the planet.
My first sports book ‘Days of Miracle and Wonder’ describes the most incredible sporting victories, often against all odds. This was followed by ‘Unlevel Playing Fields’ which tells the dramatic stories behind the greatest sporting controversies. ‘Excellence in Motion’ focuses on the respect and sacrifice displayed in the finest acts of sportsmanship. The final book in this series ‘The Real Glory’ celebrates the courage and gritty strength of athletes returning from career threatening setbacks.
