About Dr D. Bruno Starrs

Dr D. Bruno Starrs was born in Adelaide, South Australia, in a hospital. It was a year he cannot remember very well. He is happily married but childless (thankfully so, if the reader is a believer in the principles of Darwinian evolution) and irresponsibly itinerant compared to most people of his alleged experience and advanced age. It must also be noted that Dr Starrs is a mongrel of a human: his ancestry is a mix of Irish, Maltese and Indigenous Australian.
Regardless to an annoying tendency to waffle on unintelligibly as he attempts to explain various tangential dissertations related to media and pop culture, Starrs has somehow passed all examinations and succeeded in graduating from six Australian universities. His qualifications include two Masters degrees and a PhD from highly reputable Australian universities. Despite such a thorough education his verbal diarrhoea has yet to be cured.
His hobbies include natural bodybuilding (he was runner-up in the Over 50s class at the NABBA 2013 Mr Australia titles and a competitor in the NABBA 2015 Over 50s Amateur Mr Universe), traveling, cooking/eating good food and, duh: writing.
His most recent e-novel "The Roaring of the Bulls" (Starrs via Kindle, 2017) was preceded by "Bollywood Extras" (Starrs via Smashwords, 2012) which was preceded by the paperback and e-novel "That Blackfella Bloodsucka Dance!" (First Edition: Just Fiction Edition, Germany, 2011. Second Edition: Starrs via Smashwords, 2012). This early epoch of Starrs' writing life included the creation of unique "Ugly drivel" such as a collection of writing for the theatre entitled "Suicide Plays" (VDM Verlag, Germany, 2009). His first full-length novel was "I Woke Up Feeling Thailand" (First Edition: Sid Harta Publishing, Australia, 2004. Second Edition: Starrs via Smashwords, 2012).
Dr Starrs has published extensively in non-fiction too, with many peer-reviewed film, media and/or cultural studies journal articles and book chapters to his name, as well as the academic textbook "The Films of Rolf de Heer" (First Edition: VDM Verlag, Germany 2009. Third Edition: Starrs via Smashwords, 2015).
In 2015 and 2016 he won the Dungala-Kaeila Prize for two selections of creative writing from "The Roaring of the Bulls". In 2015 he won the 'Overall Best Production' award at the Manila Short + Sweet International Theatre Festival for his stage-play "Voicing up the Marriage".
Would-be stalkers please note: Dr Starrs can be difficult to physically locate, sometimes. When not sequestered away in some wretched garret, filthy and unshaven (but ever so happily writing), he can usually be found teaching English Literature/Creative Writing, Cinema or Media Studies at various Australian universities or somewhere in deepest, darkest - and preferably - weirdest South-East Asia. And would-be stalkers please also note: Dr Starrs has a very efficient bodyguard, his beautiful, strong Filipina wife, Melissa Starrs.

Well that 'secret' was rather disturbing. But I won't give it away.
