Once in Australia’s deep tropical North, Colly Campbell was a both a journalist and sometime playwright, actor and musician. In 1996 he moved to Canberra with his family and worked as a media and policy adviser in the Senate for the Australian Labor Party including Opposition Leaders and latterly for the Minister for Defence. Colly was closely involved in many Senate committee inquiries, governance reforms and multiple Federal election campaigns. He was also, for a time, Communications Director at the Australian Institute of Criminology.
Pacey crime and speculative fiction intersect in Colly’s Venn diagram of imagineering, and having worked around Government and traveled all over Australia, the future holds an endless fascination and concern.
Over the years he has published short stories, written and produced theatre and used the knife block of poetry to sharpen his language. He is now a full time writer.
He has published The Capricorn Sky and the sequel, The Kyoto Bell.
