About the author

Garth Gunston profile pic 3Garth Gunston is a wild country traveller and now author, never happier than within range of an active volcano, sailing above the Arctic Circle, or helicoptering to the top of the world’s highest waterfalls.

Garth loves to fly around the world’s most dramatic landscapes, preferably as near as possible to live volcanoes. He believes the smaller the plane, the better the view!

The two pictures below show his view of the gigantic crater of Mount Longonot, and the unmistakably sharp peak of Mount Kenya -– both subject to a Garth Gunston fly-by on a recent trip to East Africa.


Mount KenyaGarth’s remote area travelling and experience of PR in the pharmaceutical industry provide the perfect background for his first novel – The Tissue Trail Conspiracy – where five young women backpackers face certain execution for heroin smuggling, until evidence emerges that they are pawns in a global political conspiracy.
