Occupation Web Designer & publisher & writer
Location Newcastle, NSW, Australia
Introduction Born in Newcastle NSW Australia in the '60s, went away to Qld when I was a boy, then returned to this former steel city, now almost cloistered Metropolis. I run my own Empire: Mockfrog Enterprises (which is divided up into Mockfrog Design - web & paper as well as Skive Magazine, and Mary Celeste Press). I have been creatively writing since 1992 - started with poetry, had poetry and short stories + articles published in mostly university mags. In 2004 had a novella, JAKE, published through Independence Jones in Sydney Australia. In 2006 my book of short stories HER MOUTH LOOKED LIKE A CAT'S BUM was published through World Audience in New York City, USA. In 2008, World Audience published a collection of my poems called, CATS CREEP THE FIRE TO ART. My new book, JOHN F. KENNEDY LIVES IN THE FUTURE! : short stories, is published by World Audience Publishers NY, USA, and is on sale now through Amazon.
