Part true-crime stories from the street, part autobiography, Wayne McKay has lived the hard yards and come out the other side triumphant. From beginnings in a broken home to life on the street and in jail, he has survived without friends and family to count on and very little hope. McKay prides himself on not being a name-dropper or rat, but shares his story as a way of dealing with his past and seeking closure and to show others that he is not who they thought he was.
Born in Albany, Wayne McKay has spent most of his life in regional parts of Australia and now resides in Geelong with his fiancee Michele, two sons Jayden and Ryley and daughter Tahni. He spent two years riding, walking and running to book shops and libraries, researching how to get his story heard, and it was a little store in Swan Hill that led him down the path to Brolga. He prides himself on not being a name dropper or a rat and has written this book, one: for closure, two: to show people that he is not who they thought he was, and three: to prove that there can be light at the end of the tunnel.
