The Wall that Wasn't is a hilarious tale of a man, chosen by the people to look after their town, who gets so carried away with his own importance and new-found power that he appoints himself King. One of the many crazy things he decides is that the town needs a wall to keep out the bad guys and aliens that are heading their way in a run-down old Winnebago. The townsfolk, as you can imagine, are not at all happy with this self-appointed King and decide to do something about it. The Wall that Wasn't is a cautionary tale of what can happen when we elect silly, power-hungry people who can't spell to public office.

Author Biography

After graduating from university, where he majored in psychology, Kym began a career in market research. This career would span almost forty years, of which ten were spent living and working overseas in places like Kuala Lumpur, Philadelphia and London. In 2017, with their twin daughters, Hannah and Samantha now grown, Kym and his wife Kerrie sold their family home in Sydney and moved to the northern coast of NSW. There, after the mandatory household chores, Kym spends his time out on the deck admiring the view and writing.
