RUSSELL PROCTOR - Writer
ABOUT ME - "Acting Resume" link below.
I am an Australian writer of fantasy, science fiction and horror, but I've also been many other things, including a teacher, lawyer, actor, health project manager and pizza delivery boy. My other interests include astronomy, cats and travel.
My literary influences include Mervyn Peake, Roger Zelazny and William Hope Hodgson. But I also admire any writer who can break the boundaries, or at least test them. I write because I enjoy writing, and write about what interest me. So each of my works is different from the rest. Don't expect a brand, because I don't have one.
I live in the city of Brisbane in Australia, which is hot in summer and pleasantly cool in winter and all sorts of things in between. My overseas travels have favoured exotic destinations rather than the more popular ones. I've climbed Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. walked the Kokoda Track in Papua New Guinea and flown over Antarctica.
