about Raymond Boyd














Raymond Boyd Dunn is a "born and bred" Australian. After his retirement Raymond Boyd became a grey nomad, and with his wife, spent some time touring this vast country ofAustralia. He was born in the smallBurnettValleytown ofMonto,Queensland, and for his entire life has answered to the name of 'Boyd'. Apart from his travels he has lived all of his life in Queensland, and after satisfying his thirst for seeing first hand this wonderful country we live in, settled on the Sunshine Coast to spend his remaining years in the sunshine near the beach.


He commenced his working life as a Bank Officer in Monto, then at Meandarra, Brisbane branches, Nambour and Dalby. He resigned after thirteen years to become self-employed. At various stages he has owned a Corner Store, a small Supermarket Chain, a Butchery, a Milk Run, a Printery and a Cattle and Grain Farm.  He has been involved, in various capacities, in Cricket and Tennis Clubs; Jaycees, Lions and Rotary Clubs and Aero Clubs, Rector's Warden in Anglican Church. He was a Cricketer, played tennis, tried to play golf, and was a keen long distance runner.


Upon taking a well-earned retirement he wrote his unpublished autobiography, which was for distribution amongst his family of six children and numerous grand-children. A visit to Cooktown, where he learnt of the Palmer River Gold Rush, was the incentive to keep writing and produce his first novel 'Palmer Gold'  He then settled down to write novels, producing two more books to complete a Trilogy...'An Australian Ranch' and "Carly and Sam...Will and Effie'.  There followed a number of short stories, a Novella, and other novels 'Lord of the Manor in Australia and The Vintage Years.   He continues to write whilst enjoying life in the sunshine on the beautiful SunshineCoast in Queensland.
