(2/2/2004)

Colorful. Multi-skilled. Often controversial. All fair descriptions of both Australian author Kerry Collison and the characters that populate his 6 novels of political intrigue and derring do, each set in Indonesia.

Kerry's Indonesian thrillers have a ring of authenticity in them, born of his long and venture-filled years of living dangerously in Indonesia. Entering the Royal Air Force in 1962 he was assigned to an Indonesian language course at Point Cook immediately after receiving a top-level security clearance. After graduation and at the tender age of 22, Kerry was named Assistant Air Attaché at the Australian Embassy in Jakarta where he served as an interpreter during the very tumultuous years bridging the end of Soekarno's power in Indonesia and the ascension of Suharto.

In 1967, Kerry said good-bye to the diplomat's life and resigned form the Embassy staff, setting off to establish a variety of business interests in Jakarta during the early boom years of the New Order. Extensive contacts within the military and official community made Kerry extremely popular as a commercial representative for major companies seeking to establish themselves in Indonesia.

Granted Indonesian citizenship by President Suharto in 1971, Kerry went on to found more than 20 companies over the next 18 years ranging from housing estates, bars, restaurants, oil contractors, and spa/fitness centers.

In the 1990's Kerry branched out into educational ventures, promoting one of the first private universities in Australia and, later, satellite television services. He has also worked in various ventures throughout Indochina.

Kerry Collision Turning 60

On Sunday, May 9, 2004, Kerry Collison will mark his 60th birthday in Bali with his Balinese wife of 32 years, Ni Nyoman Sukasani, family and friends. Celebrating the milestone in true style, Kerry will be hosting a private birthday bash in Sanur to which he hopes many friends and acquaintances from across the region will join.
