I am a writer. I would like to be a better writer. That’s what this blog is about.
I studied a variety of courses trying to find my way through uni. Eventually I settled on a Creative Writing Major with Philosophy and Cinema Studies as minors and a side-interest in History and Cultural Studies. My English study found its way unexpectedly into a study of Classics, Middle English, Chaucer and ultimately to a translation of “Beowulf” from the original Anglo-Saxon text. I think these studies have influenced my writing, or perhaps my interest in these areas has influenced both my study and my writing.
I was raised in rural Victoria, but now live in Melbourne, Australia. After nearly two-decades of city living I still consider myself a country-boy. I have a wife, two kids, a full-time job, and a stubborn commitment to amateur football (of the Australian variety).
My first published short story, “A Choice of Kings”, appeared in (the now discontinued) Dark Edifice magazine. “Abiogenesis” appeared in Roar and Thunder. “Enfolded” appeared in Aurealis #78.
