biography of a jailed 80s entrepreneur

You are to weave the story of a failed and twice jailed Australian entrepreneur . suggested title : " Not Really Guilty ".

Designed as a 3 to 4 hour read e-book ,the entrepreneur will feature in most of the chapters of this ( autobiographical) fiction. There will be at least another 15 characters - many with a high profile in the legal and investment profession .You will be provided some details about these characters by the subject but you will need to conduct online research to complete the character picture(s).

The subject will provide extensive material about his life's journey from rags to riches to rags , from the Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York to a prison cell in Parramatta Jail . This source material will be provided by face to face interviews over skype with the subject.

To conduct the selection of the successful contractor = author the employer will provide some details about each of the characters ( eg Dennis the barrister, mid 50s, elite school education, north shore resident, with very shiny shoes , suffering short man syndrome ...much despised in the legal profession and in cahoots with ASIC) . You will then compose one of the chapters to be called " Millenium Madness " which will feature a cocktail party held at the subjects palatial residence in 1999 in which some of the below characters feature . This chapter will tell a tale of unbridled conceit and hapless ambition as some characters borrow from investment banks to invest in ridiculoulsy overpriced dot com stocks .There is much braggadocio and some illicit sex . The subject's frailties are revealed also .This chapter ( the contractor trial chapter) - of your own creation- should comprise 5,000 words ..and will be assessed on its readability..and capacity to keep the reader entertained and stimulated to continue the read. You should reveal some of the trials and tribulations and aspirations and strengths of most of the characters whilst capturing that period's descent into investment madness. Those characters will include:

Dennis Strong..the morally bankrupt barrister depicted above ( now in his late fifties)

Don Greer ...the lawyer cum banker whose ascent to power and influence is due to political skill only ( now in his late fifties)

Pattie Downer... the subject’s best friend and confidant who is a small time Eastern suburbs ( Sydney) drug dealer ( now in her early sixties)

Alex Drysdale...raffish ,good looking and well travelled Englishman who marries and discovers he is gay ( now in his early fifties)

Simon Boer ... a steady family man , committed Christian who despairs of the subject’s buccaneering ways whilst admiring him at the same time ( now in his late forties)

Liz ...the subject’s wife of 39 years, a romantic stoic who met the subject at age 16, fell helplessly in love , married at 20 and has had 6 children by him

Larry Adler..the departed 80s entrepreneur who benefits from the subject’s talents but plays a hand in his demise ( deceased 1989)

Lawrie Connell...the 80s disgraced merchant banker who was a client of the subject and an early backer ( deceased 1996)

Mike Rand ...a former cell mate and convicted drug dealer (now in his early sixties)

Murray Rosencrantz...a former Bear Stearns investment banker from New York blessed with rat cunning and a need to prove himself to his Jewish fraternity ( now in his early fifties)

Justice Kim Santow...the departed former Supreme Court judge ( deceased 2008)

Ivan James..the subject’s former banker and fellow director who wrecks his merchant bank with a $[url removed, login to view] loss( now in his fifties)

Ross Dempsey...solicitor and spineless ASIC enforcement division agent whose misgivings about ASIC’s treatment of the subject lead to his sacking ( now in his forties)

Trial participants receive $300 plus 1% royalty . Selected contractor receives $300 per chapter plus 2% royalty per chapter .Completed work must be submitted within 6 months of commencement
