In previous publications, the author has written of fun in childhood, adventure as an adult, daring in military service of country, and of the people he has met and places he has visited on that journey.

In this, his latest endeavour, Noel Humphreys pays due respect to all those he considers had some input into his previous books: praise for many of his long-time friends, acquaintances and heroes; tributes in recognition of those who have had some influence on his writing; and eulogies for the comfort of family and friends who have lost loved ones over recent times.

Noel Humphreys

Noel Humphreys was born in 1947, the third of four children. As his parents led a nomadic lifestyle, Noel was educated in several New South Wales schools.

Noel worked a few years for the New South Wales State Rail Authority before following his eldest brother’s lead and enlisting in the Army. His twenty-year career included two tours of Viet Nam during the conflict in that country. The first tour was shared with both of his brothers.

He married when he was nineteen years old, and he and his wife, Heather, had two daughters and adopted a son. They are still happily married, and in 2016 will celebrate their Golden Wedding Anniversary. Noel and Heather now live in Caboolture, Queensland.

“This Homeland of Mine” is Noel’s first book, to be published by Jabiru Publishing, Cairns, Australia in 2015.
