Gordon Lee Chambers was born in Africa but has lived in Australia for most of his adult life. His passions have been raising his children, spending time with his friends, travelling and writing. In the late 1980’s Gordon had experience as a technical writer and then expanded this repertoire to travel articles and short stories. His storytelling for his own children resulted in several publications.
His book The Day My Father Dance Again, published in ’96, was motivated by his work with the Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. In 1997 he was commissioned by the Darling Harbour Authority to write the film Reef Dreaming film script. The production on a giant water screen in Cockle Bay showcased indigenous Australians leading up to the Sydney Olympics.
Gordon is often writing, but the 2019 release of Searching for Monkumar was his first publication in two decades. The reviews for the book have been incredibly positive, and it is a highly encouraging return to the public arena for an inspired writer.
