Barry Simiana


I live (for the moment) in South Grafton on The North Coast of NSW Australia. Have had a short story published in an anthology in th US called Next Stop Hollywood - 15 Short Stories bound For the Screen, tho it is not in my usual field of work. My main interest is speculative fiction, using a motif of "what if..." where (i hope) the reader comes away wondering exactly that.
