Jeff Burns lives in Melbourne and writes at, you guessed it, the kitchen table.
He writes stories in a three-act screen structure exploring modern issues and themes of manhood, mortality and misunderstanding. His stories are meant to be funny, usually.
He is working on a short story collection titled: Our Lady of Five Fires.
In his day job, Jeff works for a British multinational.
Jeff has attended a number of universities where he studied arts and business. He is also a graduate of the School of Artillery (now there’s a story).
His literary heroes are TC Boyle, Tom Wolf and Simon Winchester.
