Chris Faille

Chris Faille was born in 1952. From the age of 16 he wanted to be a policeman, but began his career as a Design Draftsman, specialising in large marine installations. In 1978 he joined the Victorian police force, rising to the position of a prosecutor and then investigator with the Sex Offences Unit. In 2012 he was appointed to help establish the first Family Violence Unit in East Gippsland. He lives in a 100 year old solid brick Federation house in Bairsndale which he and his wife Jenni have lovingly restored. They share it with a German Shepherd, two cats, inside birds, outside birds, tropical fish, gold fish, tortoises and green tree frogs. Jeremy is his first book for children, and is based on a true story.
