Justin South

Justin is a commercial writer by profession and likes to relax writing sensual gay romance stories, often spiced with murder-mystery or mystery-suspense themes. 

Over recent years he has counselled and assisted a large number of gay youths in Australia and some overseas. His contribution to a video supporting the 'It Gets Better' project provides some detail, commencing at the 7 mins 55 secs mark here:

As the video shows, he’s had exposure to a range of issues confronting gay youths and families. Some of the themes of Paul & Sam are amalgams of many of the experiences encountered. So too is another YA work, Alex & Drew, which he intends extending and releasing on Smashwords in 2014. 

He has several other works in progress all of which, he expects, will be released over the next two years. He believes his interest in the murder/mystery/suspense themes of his stories can be traced back to his love of Agatha Christie books with doses of Mike Hammer thrown in.

When not mulling over a manuscript or business document, he might be out fishing, yachting or surfing and having friends around for barbies with drinks and plenty of banter. 

Cheers and happy reading.
