Cyril, was a journalist on The West Australian for 36 years, 25 of them as crime reporter.
He has covered assignments in Libya's Sahara Desert, Afghanistan, New Guinea, Central Borneo, Nepal and Japan to name but a few.
He searched for and found a lost tribe of Penans in Borneo; walked the Kokoda Trail; traced the "poppy trail" through the "Golden Triangle"; got into Kabul only days before tribal warfare broke out and was on assignment in Hiroshima during that city's 50th anniversary of the atomic bomb attack.
Since leaving The West Australian 26 years ago, he has written 21 books, and has just published his autobiography, “Chameleon – Reporter at Large.”
