Raymond Spenser was born in 1940s South Africa, when it was forbidden to treat a Black citizen as an equal member of society. This intolerance sets the stage for Raymond's enlightening and inspiring global adventure. As a child, Raymond had extraordinary dreams: to become a magician, actor, and director. In addition, he aspired to experience the "real Africa." After several decades of traveling through Southern Africa, the United Kingdom and Australia, Raymond achieves his professional goal: TV production in Johannesburg. Racial politics impels Raymond and his family to reach the Australian safe haven of Canberra. In the 1980s, Raymond moves with his wife and two sons to Zimbabwe, where he works as a producer and teacher, and becomes deeply involved in the local community. But soon, Raymond sees the inevitable writing on the wall. It is time to say, "Goodbye" to Africa. Author Desmond Bishop writes because he wants to engage the world around him. He started writing educational documentaries for the ABC in Sydney, in 1975. Desmond has worked as a producer and a teacher. His next book, The Wizard of Zee, tells the story of a boy who meets a wizard who teaches him to believe in himself. Desmond grew up in British colonial Southern Africa. Although he now resides in Asia, he enjoys travelling back to Nimbin, Australia, where he has a deep connection to the community.
