About Marshall Browne

Marshall Browne, born in Melbourne, is a sixth generation Australian. His forbear was one of the founders of Australia's first bank and Marshall Browne, after an education which left him (he says) pretty much confused, followed several others of the family line into banking. He has since been based variously in Hong Kong, London, Melbourne and Bhutan, in a variety of banking roles. He also served as a commando in the Australian forces, and as a paratrooper in the British forces. His previous novels, The Gilded Cage (1996) and The Burnt City (1999) have both received considerable critical acclaim. He is also a prize-winning short story writer, who was awarded the My Brother Jack Award in 1999.
