I am a writer, science-fiction critic and nursery-hand (the garden kind, not the baby kind). I’m the author of two books: the deeply Australian post-apocalyptic tale The Rain Never Came, and the upcoming Kaiju story-cycle We Call It Monster. I also write science fiction criticism for Aurealis magazine and review for the independent ‘weird music’ website Cyclic Defrost, my short fiction can be found floating around online, and I have completed a PhD that critically and creatively explored the relationship between Australian post-apocalyptic fiction and Australian notions of national identity. I love all things music-related, the Australian environment, overlooked genres and playing in the garden. I hope that you’re having a nice day.
