About

me with balloon when I was five

Peter Frankis is an Australian-based writer, now living in the industrial town of Port Kembla south of Sydney. In 2005, his first collection of short stories – Trouble in the Garden – was published by Ginninderra Press and was short-listed for the Queensland Premier’s Steele Rudd award for short-stories and won the 2005 ACT Publishing and Writing Award. In 2007 his second collection — Not a flotation device — was published by Ginninderra Press . This collection won the ACT Writing and Publishing Award 2008.

After a hiatus of a few years, I’ve returned to writing and I’m currently working (kinda) on my new collection – Fuse Country. This site features some of my favourite stories, poetry, travel stories and reviews. It’s pretty much whatever takes my fancy.

Hope you like it.
