Brian Sherlock has made it to his early 30s and lives in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne – he was eight years old when he decided he wanted to write novels for the rest of his life. Chaos Surging, the first part of his adult fantasy trilogy, has been in the works for going on seventeen years and he’s very happy to have published it independently. When he isn’t writing he enjoys backpacking and eating... but he has no stomach for Krispy Kreme or tinned beetroot!
I do have a writing routine. Monday through Friday I go to work from eight to three then I come home, eat, and afterwards write. I usually write until 11. On weekends I wake up, eat breakfast, write for three/four hours, take a shower, eat again, then write for the rest of the night. Once I finish a piece, I edit it with the same routine.
