Reviews & Comments:

Lances books are now available at over one hundred and sixty outlets from Darwin to Hobart.

“I laughed, cried and felt exhausted after reading Tears over the Kimberleys. An international best seller by a new and exciting author, different, outside the square who writes on human relationships with a unique and exciting writing style”


“Wow! These characters are so real and powerful I was unable to put either book down. I had to read them a number of times, the message in both are thought provoking and the main characters seem real. I eagerly await the authors next book. His writing style is refreshing, different and fast flowing, keeping the reader intrigued.”




“Dare To Live the Dream is a celebration of one womans freedom in discovering her own sexuality, pushing the boundaries in a new relationship. One for the older woman told superbly by an author who has a unique talent and writing style”

Lance C Wilson Bio continued...

Lance has always believed in family first and living life to the fullest some of his fondest memories are: walking into the Wyndham Club one evening and a meeting was on discussing catering for the Wyndham and Halls Creek races, seems no one was interested in the job. They offered Lance and Cynthia all the takings if they would oblige, no problems to this couple so they drove to Kununurra and bought supplies, spent the day making hamburgers and cleaning up the shack used as the race kiosk and borrowed equipment from the club. They made enough to travel to Darwin and buy a new caravan, this was twenty years ago and shows the spirit both had for walking outside the square.

The following wet season returning to Home Valley Station on the Gibb  River Road ,the river was running so strong the road was closed. No problems, they taped up the caravan and started over the swollen river. Halfway over, a rock came up and jammed under the tow bar, Cynthia climbed over and  kept her foot on the accelerator whilst Lance waded in the swollen river and unhooked the caravan. Wading back they attached a long rope and pulled the soaked caravan out. Station staff waiting on the other side in horror, informed them a station dog had been taken that morning by a large salty who was still cruising nearby.

Another of the many incidents was when Lance picked up a calf  onto his quad bike from a cow in the calving paddock and headed back to the cattle yards. He was unaware that the cow thought Cynthia on her quad had the calf and took to her in full fury. Looking back when he deposited the calf in the cattle yards he saw Cynthia disappearing in the distance, cow in hot pursuit, racing back he blocked the cow as Cynthia hit the boundary fence in the calving paddock shaking like a leaf.

Another fond memory was of a female tourist who was taking photos outside the cattle yards when a big scrub bull somehow cleared the fence and went for her, luckily Lance had the station ute he was blocking a gate with and reversing back blocked the bull, the poor tourist stood in shock shaking wetting her pants.

When running the BP roadhouse at Fitzroy Crossing years ago during an Aboriginal football carnival they (and hard working staff) took over seventy thousand in takeaway in one day. The roadhouse was so crowded Lance stood at the door to stop pilfering, one lady left and staff pointed to her. Lance approached her in the carpark outside and he asked her to handover what she had not paid for, passing over a packet of cigarettes she opened her legs and there was a chicken  held firmly between her thighs, noting no panties Lance told her to keep the bloody chicken.

Now he is finishing off the many stories he started over the years and informs us his best (as far as he is concerned) is 'The Gulf' soon to be released.

Not your average bio perhaps but then some people are not your average people.

Dark Side of the Rock

I have no need to remind anyone in Australia and the world, of the remarkable story of a missing baby at Ayers Rock in central Australia in 1980; it enthralled the world and the media went into a frenzy.

Perhaps like many, I had not given the story much thought over the years but at the time, I was rather disturbed at the lack of any real evidence and subsequent conviction.

It was perhaps the most disgraceful and shameful period in our media history.

The conviction and trial did not contain the mandatory three items required for a conviction of murder. There was no body, no murder weapon and more pertinently, no motive. The trial was based purely on circumstantial and scientific evidence of a highly suspect nature which in fact, turned out to be false.

Both those charged had no hope of achieving a fair trial in Australia thanks to the disgraceful conduct of the media circus, their wild reporting of ridiculous claims and its “kangaroo court” that convicted alleged criminals long before the trial.

It was only recently that a helicopter pilot informed me of the presence of a white woman living with a small group of Aboriginals. Did the officials, all those years ago, ever consider this scenario?

I hope you enjoy my fictitious slant on one of our greatest mysteries.

The Stone People

I do hope you enjoy this novel. Although fiction, it enters the realm of a subject most of the populace are uninformed of or are even aware, that such peoples existed in ancient Australia.

Between the 1940s and the 1960s, pygmies lived in North Queensland.

According to records in the anthropological textbooks at that time, they had come in “from the wild of the tropical rainforests to live in missions in the region”.

Despite photographs of the pygmies confirming their existence and the Bradshaw rock paintings (Gwion Gwion) – where are they now?
