About Roderick Donald
But first, call me Rick – all my friends do!
Rick is the creator of the breakout contemporary urban fiction series detailing Cait Lennox’s dramatic journey from a happy-go-lucky millennial to a powerful and ruthless femme fatale with amazing paranormal abilities and powers. And hot off the press is his latest writing venture - the gripping Assassin Chronicles, an edge-of-your-seat adventure that will see you taken to the world's hot spots as fractured ex-SAS sniper Sgt Tony 'Ice' O'Donnell ends up as a gun for hire, taking out the bad guys.
He lives in Melbourne, Australia, with Sandi, his wife of many years, and is the proud father of two thirty-something millennial children. There are also three beautiful young grandchildren in the mix who Sandi and Rick spoil to excess!
A lifelong world traveller since his early twenties, Rick’s relentless curiosity has seen him visit and live in over 67 countries . . . and he’s still exploring. Now the threat of COVID is passing it's bucket list time again for Rick and his wife, and will see them visit South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Kenya and Tanzania.
Rick’s extensive travels have enabled him to bring a dynamic realism to his stories that can only be achieved by actually being in the moment. Whether it’s shopping at the night markets in Vietnam, haggling with vendors in an Arab souk, sailing straight through the eye of a raging typhoon off the Philippines, hot air ballooning over the unique “fairy chimneys” of Cappadocia, or working side by side with Special Ops teams, Rick has done it.
