About Brian

I am an old new writer. By that I mean I have been writing books only since I retired in 1998. Most of the books I have produced I have co-authored. So where I say I have produced or written a book don’t take it too literally.

Writing keeps me busy and like all writers I want to sell my books but I find all the technicalities associated with tweeting, blogging and face booking etc. a bit of a chore. But I will try harder.

At first I only wrote books for schools in the South Pacific for the publisher Pearson Australia, then in 2012 David Barrett and I published Digger’s Story, his biography. More recently Ron Smallwood and I wrote Riotous Retirement, about life in a retirement village. A couple of years ago Ron and I also wrote the content for a children’s book My Australia. I also had a year off with the dreaded big C but I recovered thanks to modern medicine. Now I have written a new book A Gordon For Me, about my time in the Scottish regiment the Gordon Highlanders. There is a song of the same name which I like so I called the book after it. Listen to the song here.

I have several sites under booksbybrian.com.au including A Gordon for Me. This is because I cannot have a site dedicated to one writing genre, Military, Humour, Children’s books or Science books because I write in all these genres and perhaps I might write in others in the future.

I have the same problems as all writers who are not in the famous top 0.5% of the industry. I find it really hard to get published. However, I have been lucky and had some success in that area with Digger’s Story. I recruited a friend of mine (Agneau Press) to publish Riotous Retirement, so I have been down the self-publishing route also.

Very fortunately I found a Scottish, publisher for A Gordon for Me. The book certainly needed a Scottish publisher. Look them up at https://ringwoodpublishing.com.

If you would like to follow me then please subscribe to my mailing list. (You are automatically subscribed if you have already subscribed to any of my other websites.) I am always available through good old fashioned email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and look forward to answering any questions or just having a conversation.

Anyhow I will keep at it on this new combined site where all my book information has been put together by the experts at Webilicious.

Books By Brian Home Page

Welcome to "Books by Brian" where you can easily find all the books authored or co-authored by Brian Robertson.

This website also serves as a gateway to the dedicated websites for all of Brian's books, Digger’s Story at Warstory, PNG School Books, Riotous Retirement and A Gordon For Me. Use the buttons at the top of the page to navigate between the websites.

Go to the pull-down menu Shop, above, to see a list of all the books I have had some part in creating since 1998. If you would like to know more about any of these books just ask in an email sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Many of the textbooks that are for sale here would be very suitable for children who are home schooled. Understanding science, for example, does not depend on having every last piece of the usual school equipment. As an ex-science teacher I know how important experimental work can be but a lack of the conventional school laboratory equipment should not deter you. There are many experiments you can devise at home and of utmost importance is having a book that explains all concepts in the clearest detail.

My next major task is to write a series of science booklets or study guides. They will be affordable and accessible to everyone.
