John Perrier was born in Brisbane, Australia in 1967. Perrier has published five books across a variety of genres and subjects.



Set in Australia in the year 2031, this story is science-fiction comedy at its best.

When Dave, a hopeless but lovable 34 year old, meets Alexandra, the girl of his dreams, he feels as though his luck has finally changed. But due to his ineptness with technology, he tragically loses contact with her.

Meanwhile, the lust for supremacy of two powerful Americans ignites a bitter feud. Their fight reaches around the globe and soon entwines not only Dave and Alexandra but also a superstar football player nicknamed ‘God’.

Their final meeting precipitates an event that no-one saw coming.

'A Few Quiet Beers with God' was the first book I wrote. I completed it in about 1995. At the time the action was set in 2020, and I had dreamed up the most imaginative and outlandish advancements in technology that I could envisage. Unfortunately for my manuscript, real life technology proceeded at a far quicker pace, and by 2014 had overtaken my imagination! I undertook a significant re-write, and set the book a little further in the future. The result is what I hope readers will find a humorous and enjoyable tale.
