Steve Harrison was born in Yorkshire, England, grew up in Rochdale, Greater Manchester, migrated to New Zealand and eventually settled in Sydney, Australia, where he lives with his wife.
As he juggled careers in shipping, insurance, online gardening and the postal service, Steve wrote short stories, sports articles and a long running newspaper humour column called HARRISCOPE: a mix of ancient wisdom and modern nonsense. In recent years he has written a number of unproduced feature screenplays, although being unproduced was not the intention, and developed projects with producers in the US and UK. His script, Sox, was nominated for an Australian Writers’ Guild ‘Awgie’ Award and he has written and produced three short films under his Pronunciation Fillums partnership.
His first novel, TimeStorm, was Highly Commended in the Fellowship of Australian Writers (FAW) National Literary Awards, Jim Hamilton Award in the fantasy/science fiction category, for a novel of sustained quality and distinction by an Australian author.
Steve’s second novel, Blurred Vision, was published by Elsewhen Press in August 2019 (ebook) and November 2019 (paperback).
