I write ads by day and bedtime stories at night. The stories and essays posted here have been published previously and several have won or been short-listed for literary awards. I am currently enrolled in a PhD in writing at UTS while scratching away at a novel about the death wish, art and social media. In the meanwhile, I’ll post the occasional story/essay/musing here.

    Your Japan’s Suicide Forest was a wonderful read!

    And a UTS student! Me too! I’ll be sourcing this in one of my “Contemporary Japan” assignments.

    Thank you for your work. A really interesting read :)


  2. Hi Aaron, my apologies for tardy response. I found this only after deleting mountains of spam.
    I’m so glad you enjoyed the paper.
    All the best, Sinead
