Denis Fitzpatrick


I began writing in 1986 at the age of 14 as a result of finishing (at the time) The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant. My first publication was Bearing all Gods and Goddesses, an anthology published by Independence Jones, an independent publishing house, whom have labelled me 'Sydney's hippest writer' as well as 'the hippest of off-beat writers.' They published my next book, King Street Blues, a positive tale of my experiences with homelessness in the inner cities of Sydney and Melbourne. My current book is These Very Wise Voices, available on iBooks, and is a discussion of ancient secrets revealed to me by voices that only I was able to hear, a result of my diagnosed schizophrenia for which I have been in a full remission since 2010.

Writing is very much a compulsion for me and is the only thing that gives my life meaning. This meaning I project in my work by creating motivated characters, uplifting themes, and never swearing (although in my second novel MS, the 'f' word is mentioned heartily several times in a short paragraph.) I plan to continue this noble vision of mine until my very last moment.
