About

Martin Chambers was born in Perth, Western Australia. He is married and has two adult daughters. He is a biologist who understands our origins are from the sea and believes we are not safe unless our feet are wet. His recreations include kayaking, sailing and sitting in the spa.

He has been publican, geology field assistant, lab technician and quality control at the Swan Brewery. He thinks that it is a reflection of the modern world that ‘Quality Control’ for a brewery involved checking that the labels were on the bottles straight. In 1992 he began, with partner Tom Suffling, the adventure tourism business Rivergods. For six years until 2004 he was the tour leader and ferry driver at Penguin Island. In 2002 he set up the BBQ Party Boats, this was the ultimate bottom of the harbour scheme. These hire boats with the soul of a submarine put adventure back into a river trip. Martin has written several books. He writes regularly for travel and adventure publications and has had poetry and short stories published in anthologies. As well as his blog, samples of his writing and short stories are posted regularly at his facebook author page or you can be kept up to date with his latest small thoughts on twitter.
