ORIGINALLY from London’s East End, Keith Austin has been a journalist more than 40 years. After working in local newspapers in London, Essex and the Home Counties he made the move to Fleet Street in 1986 when he joined The Sunday Times as deputy chief sub. Since then Keith has worked in Glasgow, Beijing and, for the past 26 years, Sydney, Australia.
HE HAS been, variously, a chief sub, production editor, travel editor, feature writer, regular columnist, news reporter, restaurant and book reviewer, and has also edited two cookbooks, Blokes and Seafood, and four editions of the NSW Good Pub Food Guide.
HE IS also the author of GRYMM, a novel for Young Adults described by The Guardian as “up there with Stephen King and Neil Gaiman”, and SNOW, WHITE, published in 2014. JAGO, the third of his Fractured Fairytales, was published as an Amazon Kindle edition in November 2014.
HE IS passionate about food, drink, travel, writing, photography, humour and football. But not in that order.
