Aidan De Brune was a Canadian-born writer who settled in Australia. In the 1920s and 1930s a number of his novels appeared in Australian newspapers as serials, and he also appears to have written serials specifically for publication in newspapers. In 1921 the Sydney Daily Mail sponsored him to walk around Australia, during the course of which he spent 6 weeks laid up at Burketown Hospital.
