Adrian Johns Celebrates the Launch of his Autobiography
Adrian Johns celebrated the launch of his book, Shiny Arses, Skippy and Men in Orange, earlier this month at his home in Brisbane, Australia. The event was attended by his acquaintances. The author read a few excerpts from his book which were well received and brought a few smiles and laughs to those who attended.
Shiny Arses, Skippy and Men in Orange is the autobiography of Adrian Johns, recently published by Austin Macauley Publishers. From growing up in England to finally settling in Australia, the author takes his readers on a spectacular journey with himself. The book covers his childhood in the countryside of England, his thirty years spent in the British Army, his days as a coal miner in Australia, and his once celebrated but now unsettled relationship with the Australian Wildlife. What was Adrian Johns doing in coal mines and how did he reach there? Why did his relationship with wildlife become turbulent when once it was love? To find out his complete story, place your order here and live, for a moment, the vicarious but exciting life of a soldier, a miner, and an adventurer.
Adrian Johns was born in Cornwall, England in 1967. He joined the British Army in 1986 and currently lives in Australia. His sharp wit, dry sense of humour, and his ability to entertain his varied audience come from his thirty years of company with soldiers and underground coal mine workers. He always kept his intellectual quest afloat, and this autobiography is a sincere attempt of giving back to his people and humanity at large what he learned throughout his life.
