About the Author

David Chadwick, a Texas raised wanderer, college dropout, bumbling social activist and hobbyhorse musician, began his formal Zen study under Shunryu Suzuki-roshi in 1966 at the age of twenty-one. Many years later, Suzuki's successor, Zentatsu Richard Baker-roshi, shaking his head, said of Chadwick: "Years of expensive Zen training gone to waste." In 1988 friends and supporters underwrote Chadwick's journey to Japan so he could begin an open-ended period of voluntary exile and remedial education. In Japan he practiced more Zen, got married, studied Japanese language and culture, taught English and messed around. He returned to America, wrote books, songs, websites, blogs, moved to Bali in 2013 where he lives with fourth wife, Katrinka McKay. He has two sons from the first and third marriages: Kelly born in 1973 and Clay born in 1991. His main work is on the Cuke Project to preserve the legacy of Shunryu Suzuki and those whose paths crossed his. Tons on him can be found at with links from the home page to that and much more.


To Find the Girl from Perth is much more than a mystery thriller; there are puzzles, mazes, a cast of quite a few "characters," descriptions of West Australian customs and landscapes, brilliant and relentless dialogues, and twists and turns in a rescue attempt, all of which keep the reader engaged and wanting to continue reading.

On top of that, there are songs and artwork by the author.

As stated, "This book has it All."

What an interesting, entertaining book. I enjoyed "Thank You And OK" by David Chadwick so much I didn't want it to end, I also didn't want this one to end. It's nice to find an author who is able to write in such a creative manner. I think I even learned a few things while I was reading it, a plus. I love paintings that seem to pull you into them, you get lost just looking, David Chadwick has that effect on me, I get pulled into and lost in his work. Hope he's already started another one, if he writes them, I'll read them!
