Bruce Venables


You might be familiar with Bruce Venables from his appearances in Blue Heelers or Water Rats. The former policeman has also published a novel and a book of poetry.

Venables' creative years follow several decades as a police officer in Tasmania and Hong Kong, where he rose to become Platoon Commander in the Police Tactical Unit.

After many years in Hong Long, Venables moved to Sydney in 1984 to begin a new career as a writer of film and television scripts. His television credits include Wildside, Water Rats, and Murder Call, while his films include Paperback Hero with Hugh Jackman and Claudia Karvan, Evil Angels with Meryl Streep, and On Our Selection with Geoffrey Rush and Leo McKern.

Bruce Venables' second novel Time of the Dragons became a best-seller. His poetry collection The Spirit of the Bush was published in 2003.

Venables is married to actress Judy Nunn.
