Gordon Milburn

Biography

I'm a Self-Published Storyteller and a Self-Produced film Maker, but in the
meantime, like Hugh Jackman in "Paperback Hero" I drive Roadtrains
in the great Australian Outback and write stories.
Just to qualify that, I'm a Kiwi Living in the land of OZ.

But it all Started when I was:
Down 'n' Out in Paradise; Unemployed, 3 kids, the local DJ's
announced that Hollywood had run out of stories, they were going
to make a movie of the Flintstones. Desperation or Ego, still not
sure, but I thought, "#*:! I can do that". So I wrote, pen to paper,
literally, and it was enlightening, therapeutic even. It gave me a
voice. So here i am, you can do the maths, still banging away and
still loving it.

Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
Short Answer; Frustration!
Long Answer; If a Tree falls in the Forest and no ones there to here it, does it make a sound? So if a Storyteller tells a story and no ones there to here it, is he in fact a Storyteller?
Frustrated at jumping through the hoops of a few setting the rules, to get to the masses, that could relate to my voice, I'm hoping that this Platform will get me there.
Either way, I've done it my way. Yes I know Sorry.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Having a voice! Even if at first it was just for myself. Now that I can share, I can contribute. That's Cool!
