About Dr D. Bruno Starrs

Dr D. Bruno Starrs was born in Adelaide, Australia, in a year he cannot remember. He is unmarried, childless and irresponsibly itinerant compared to most people of his experience and advanced age (whatever that is).

Despite a tendency to waffle on unintelligibly upon various tangential dissertations related to media and culture, Starrs has somehow passed all examinations and succeeded in graduating from six Australian universities. His qualifications include two Masters degrees and a PhD.

His hobbies include natural bodybuilding and fitness (he has been a four times finalist in the Mr Australia titles), traveling, cooking and eating good food and, yes, you guessed it: writing.

His most recent novel, "Bollywood Extras" (Starrs via Smashwords, 2012) was preceded by the novel "That Blackfella Bloodsucka Dance!" (First Edition: Just Fiction Editions, Germany, 2011. Second Edition: Starrs via Smashwords, 2012) and 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 culture journal articles and book chapters to his name, as well as the academic textbook "Dutch Tilt, Aussie Auteur: The Films of Rolf de Heer" (First Edition: VDM Verlag, Germany 2009. Second Edition: Starrs via Smashwords, 2013).

Check out Dr Starrs' three novels, numerous free stage-plays and a free film-script also available here at Smashwords.

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), the author can usually be found teaching Academic Writing and/or Media Studies at various Australian universities or teaching English as a Foreign Language somewhere in deepest, darkest - and preferably - weirdest South-East Asia.

Ha! Ha! Way to advertise "That Dead man Dance", not that it needs any more publicity.

Hmmm. I wonder who would play the vampire in the film adaptation of this book? I guess it would have to be a Blackfella version of RPat!

I was referred to Blackfella Bloodsucka because the main character is an Aboriginal Australian with the same totem as me, the garrawi or White Cockatoo. This novel is one of the best examples of Aboriginal writing today. Well done, my brother!
