Books and Writing

I’m the author of four books and the co-editor of one. My writing has also appeared in many anthologies and literary journals. My writing is a mix of the fictional, semi-autobiographical, and fully-autobiographical, and I write about a range of topics: culture, family, race, childhood, sex, community, dating, gay identity, and more. I love being a published author and I’m very thankful to my publishers and editors. I’m certainly not a big-selling author, but the books I’ve sold have allowed me to get my words and thoughts out into the world, perform and present at lively events, and meet interesting people and kindred souls – both fellow authors and fans. I’m happy you’ve found this page: hope you enjoy exploring.

Writing News:

In December 09, I was added to the Australian section of Poetry International Web with a selection and overview by Michael Brennan.

Also in late 09, I did an interview with Australian music legend Kamahl as well as was guest poetry editor for Issue #8 of Peril Magazine.

Back when I was a keen first-time author, I took photos of all my launches and put them up on my (old) website. If you want to peak at really old photos, they’re here.
