The age old adage “every­one has at least one good book in them” is cer­tainly true for Brian Col­lier who, at 77, has pub­lished his first novel.

The pen­sioner, who lives with his wife Mar­garet at McCarthy & Stone’s Burling­ton Court de­vel­op­ment in Bridling­ton, be­gan writ­ing Up and Down Down Un­der in 1998.

Brian says: “We moved to Aus­tralia in 1968 af­ter a friend aroused our in­ter­est. It made sense to us to swap a small three bed­room house crammed with three chil­dren in Brough, near Hull, for plenty of land and sun­shine down un­der.

“I wrote my book un­der the pseu­do­nym Syd­ney West, as this is where we lived.”

It may not have as much sun, but Brid has sea and sand. The one and two bed­room apart­ments at Burling­ton Court are priced from £129,950.
