Austin is a Australian writer of speculative fiction, a lover of language, literature and ’90s TV.
Armed with a psychology degree, he went out into the world to study humanity, and now prefers the company of his wife and their greyhounds.
He grew up in Victoria’s high country, and despite living in Melbourne for the past decade, feels more at home amongst the mountains. You’ll often find mountains in his stories, whether sci-fi, fantasy or alternative history.
I’ve been a voracious reader my whole life, and from a young age became addicted to the symbolism and hope of Fantasy and Science Fiction. I write Speculative Fiction; so Science Fiction, Alternative History and Horror. I want my stories to remind people that they don’t need to have super powers or magic to make a difference. And in the end, we’re going to have to save ourselves.
