A journalist by profession, Lindall served in the Middle East with an Australian infantry batallion and in New Guinea and Bougainville as a field officer with the Army's Military History section. He began writing novels on a one-year delayed honeymoon visit to England in 1948. The visit spread to four years and during this time Lindall's two daughters were born - Kendall and Lindsay, each providing a syllable of their name for his pseudonym. Back in his native Adelaide, Lindall combined his writing with part-time sub-editorial work on an Adelaide newspaper. Many of his stories were published in American and British publications such as Argosy and the Saturday Evening Post.
