About the Author

Dr D. Bruno Starrs was born in Adelaide, South Australia, in a hospital. It was a year he cannot remember very well. He is happily married but childless (thankfully, if you are a believer in the principles of Darwinian evolution) and irresponsibly itinerant compared to most people of his alleged experience and advanced age. It must also be noted that Starrs is a mongrel of a human: his ancestry is a mix of Irish, Maltese and Indigenous Australian. Despite a tendency to waffle on unintelligibly as he attempts to explain various tangential dissertations related to media and pop culture, Starrs has somehow passed all examinations and succeeded in graduating from six Australian universities. His qualifications include two Masters degrees and a PhD. Despite such a thorough education his verbal diarrhoea has yet to be cured, and he has recently embarked upon a second PhD (in creative writing at Murdoch University in Australia). His hobbies include natural bodybuilding (he was runner-up in his class at the NABBA 2013 Mr Australia titles), traveling, cooking/eating good food and, duh: writing. His most recent e-novel, "Bollywood Extras" (Starrs via Smashwords, 2012) was preceded by the paperback and e-novel "That Blackfella Bloodsucka Dance!" (First Edition: Just Fiction Edition, Germany, 2011. Second Edition: Starrs via Smashwords, 2012) and a collection of writing for the theatre entitled "Suicide Plays" (VDM Verlag, Germany, 2009). His first full-length novel was "I Woke Up Feeling Thailand" (First Edition: Sid Harta Publishing, Australia, 2004. Second Edition: Starrs via Smashwords, 2012). Dr Starrs has published extensively in non-fiction too, with many peer-reviewed film, media and/or cultural studies journal articles and book chapters to his name, as well as the academic textbook "The Films of Rolf de Heer" (First Edition: VDM Verlag, Germany 2009. Third Edition: Starrs via Smashwords, 2015). Would-be stalkers please note: Dr Starrs can be difficult to physically locate, sometimes. When not sequestered away in some wretched garret, filthy and unshaven (but ever so happily writing), he can usually be found teaching Media Studies at various Australian universities or somewhere in deepest, darkest - and preferably - weirdest South-East Asia. Presently, that means the Institut Teknologi Brunei, where he holds the post of Senior Lecturer in Cinematology.
