Lost in Dystopia

black and red typewriter

I live near the Tasman Sea on the east coast of Australia but Lost in Dystopia isn’t about the beach or life in the sun. It’s about the people who live on the fringes. The ones we don’t notice or like to ignore. The misfits and the miscreants.

According to my teenage son, I’m a bit dark and I try to tap into that darkness for inspiration. I like the beauty you sometimes find in ruins. The way nature takes back the places we neglect. How people live and love and survive despite the hardships they face.

I hope you enjoy reading my stories and poems. I try to write the truth. If you like to ponder the human condition then you might find something here that you like.
