Arfer Apple worked as an executive chef. After moving to Australia thirty years ago, he traveled all over the outback country and ended up living in Darwin. He fell into hard times and wits, afflicted with leukemia. He ended up in a homeless shelter with time on his hands. He found time to write a script for a radio show that he was working on. Establishing his connection with the aboriginal people, he decided to write a short story as a film script entitled “Life Has a View.”
Being a very gregarious man and his ability to talk to anybody, he decided to repay his time to the homeless shelter by helping those who wanted to get back on their feet. After writing Legless in the Garden, which shed a black comedy about the owner of a three-legged dog, he wrote Boof a Quirky Dog’s Tale. He has now released two more black comedy books full of quirky characters, The Strength That Lies Within and The Dark Secret.
