Also employed by Sievwright and Stout prior to writing his first novel was James Alexander Barr who used the pseudonym Gilbert Rock to publish By Passion Driven: The Story of a Wasted Life, set in Dunedin itself. Although he published five novels under a variety of pseudonyms, it did nothing to alleviate the debt of £10,000 he had acquired, likely as property deals that had gone wrong. He fled Dunedin leaving behind his debt and his family, although his family did join him at a later date in England.
