Steve Davies


Steve Davies is an Australian writer who has been producing prolific amounts of poetry, short stories, sketches and song lyrics over the past twenty years - almost entirely for his own amusement. Encouraged by the members of the Mordialloc Writers Group to share these works with the world, he has one published collection of poetry called 'Out of my mind: a collection of poetic forms' (an eBook only - 2014) and a self-published collection of 'flash' fiction called 'Curtailed Tales' (2016). He has also contributed to two printed anthologies - Kingston My City (Mordialloc Writers Group) and The 21st Anthology (Canterbury Writers) and is currently working on 'More Curtailed Tales' and 'Not the usual murder and mayhem' (short stories).
In addition, 1970's vintage Mad magazine, Monty Python, Stephen King and a cynical view of (a) the world (b) life in all it's aspects are cited as inspirations for his writing.

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Nothing beats the opportunity to 'lose yourself' Eminem-style in a fantasy world that you control. In that space all that matters is your imagination. For me, peace can be found there.
What are you working on next?
In the not too distant future I expect to publish 'More curtailed tales'. Again there will be 100 readings, most of which will be 'flash' fiction rather than the very short or 'micro' fiction. I am about 3/4 of the way there.
But wait, there's more...
A couple of short story collections are in the pipeline. Stay tuned
