L.A. Grainger-Brown


Lucas writes short and long fiction about outsiders, fringe-dwellers and the other. He tries not to self-censor in depicting them. He has no particular genre. He aims to find interesting ways into complex human beings and their crises.

Lucas left the Defence Force awhile back. One thing he learned wandering around with a pack on his back is how important it is to fill up that huge expanse inside with what matters. Boredom is a form of loneliness; the product of every thought echoing back unanswered and unexamined. This is one reason why he writes.

Contact: Lucas at his website, thedailycatcher.net, to talk about anything writing-related. He especially welcomes feedback on his pieces that have escaped into the wild.

Upcoming project: a historical-fantasy reimagining of the Spartan Agoge.

About my earlier (2012) writings:

The World Is Never Enough (2012) represents the early germination of teenage ideas - ideas I hope to build upon and extrapolate over the years to come. With it I was by no means aiming for (the practically unattainable) completeness of ideas, only for thoroughness of thought and for elegance in conveyance, and the chance to relate to a wider audience than the physical sphere of acquaintance. I hope you enjoy it, and find some elements within it that relate to your own life and experience thus far. Please contact me at any of my addresses, as I relish the chance to exchange ideas and viewpoints on this most contentious of subjects.

Notes on Love (2012) grew out of a marriage of personal experience with an awareness of the isolation that individuals feel when it comes to the deeper aspects of love and relationships (whom can you tell? even the deepest friendships have some boundaries on intimacy). Notes on Love is an extension of the T.W.I.N.E worldview; that being a worldview which I intend to constantly hone and evolve.

These are my notes on love. They are as much a reminder to myself as to you, the reader.
