My four novels and a book of my short stories are available in all digital formats and in print.


AT LAST! After a number of agonising years I’ve just finished my latest action thriller Harris (working title) and have submitted it to a publisher. At the same time I have a few “beta readers” giving it a once-over for me. If you’re interested in being a Beta reader please email me at ianwynne@ianwynne.com.au. It’s an action-packed tale about an Australian veteran of the war in Afghanistan who suffers PTSD, has a few anger management problems and lives down a mine in Lightning Ridge until he’s forced to re-join the real world.

WHAT A CHEEK! I discovered with great interest the other day that the plot line of my novel The Seventh Vial was copied in a couple of episodes of the Netflix series Designated Survivor (Season 3). I won’t spell out the similarities in case you haven’t read my book but let’s just say I’m torn between feeling flattered and wanting to sue! Needless to say The Seventh Vial was published when Designated Survivor was just a twinkle in somebody’s eye.

Professional writer

I have extensive experience in most forms of professional writing and am available to undertake freelance or contract work.


The abduction of his daughter by the special Branch’s most wanted terrorist sends Paul Van Niekerk into a spiral of disintegration until a chance meeting gives him hope. His relentless quest to find out what happened to his daughter drags Paul through the corrupt underbelly of South Africa’s political and military organisations at the height of the Apartheid era, and on to the black heart of Soweto and the rugged, murderous mountains of Lesotho. In his hunt for the truth, Paul becomes the hunted. But Why and by whom?



Shadow By My Side


Hint: This book may not be visible on Smashwords unless you turn off the adult filter when you reach the Smashwords website.

Faith Trelawney is the glossy image of a successful young graphic designer. She has her own company, a live-in boyfriend and her life is under control – until she is asked to remember her past.

That’s when Faith’s carefully-created world disintegrates; when images from her childhood in the swamps of a fishing village called Donnybrook threaten to destroy all she has achieved.

        Faith’s is a journey of self-discovery in which there is only one constant – the love of Shadow, her wolf and protector

The Pawn


‘I’d have been content to lie on the grass that soporific summer, watching the sunset and dreaming about a cold-dewed bottle, the beer sliding down in one long sigh …’

From the warm shores of Australia’s Moreton Bay to a storm-swept English pier and a barren South African hillside. Whatever the setting, nothing is quite as it seems.


Wildlife photographer Andrew Pringle stumbles into a world of corruption and violence as he tries to make sense of his brother's murder.

As they search for the cause of his brother’s death, Andrew and his newfound girlfriend become targets of an organisation so powerful that it can kill and torture at will.

Gavel is a story about forbidden passions, entrapment and a lust for power at the highest levels of Australian society.


The Seventh Vial

A bird flu outbreak on Australia’s remote Palm Island finds journalist Ryan Helzinger in the right place at the right time – and presents him with a chance to break the biggest story of his career. But the headlines are scarcely dry on the page before there’s a target on Ryan’s back as hard-line extremists and an international hit-man seek to stop him finding out the real reason why twelve people had to die in agony.
