Jeff TownsendHi there,

Thanks for visiting my site. If you have read one of my "Aussie Adventures" books please click the link above or the icon below to go to the Aussie Adventures page.

Just a little about me. I was born in Geelong, Victoria, Australia and I am married to the incredibly cute and wonderful Nat. We live in a little town called Beeac, which is just outside of Colac, near Geelong. We live with a menagerie of animals including Dogs, Cats, Chooks, and Native Birds. We both enjoy walking, cycling and going to the movies.

I work as the Trade Department Manager for CMC Australasia. In that job I am responsible for marketing and selling quality Christian books, Bibles and other items to Christian bookstores throughout Australia and New Zealand. As you can imagine I travel quite a lot. I am also the executive editor of HSM Publishing.

In my teenage and young adult life I was lead singer of a Christian rock band called Perfect Stranger and worked extensively as a performer in Christian concerts so it was not a surprise to many of my friends when in 2000 I founded Down Under Christian Music Group and Three:16 Records, a company dedicated to the promotion of Australian and New Zealand Christian artists. We produced the popular "Down Under" CD compilation for 6 years. In 2006 I sold the business, so that I could concentrate on my work for CMCA.

I have recently finished work on “Bailey’s Crossing,” my first Christian novel for adults (see the article to the left). I am very passionate about Australasian authors writing books that will be suitable and relevant for ‘down under’ readers. .

Now why not send me an email and say hi? If you’ve read one of my books please let me know what you think.

Thanks for stopping by,

Jeff Townsend.
