Jack Fringe started a book in the 70’s and finished it in the 80’s. “In fact it was never meant to be a book. It was a collection of mad cap letters and the replies. Friends kept borrowing my file of letters and I freaked out worrying that if it was lost – that was it. In 1986 I self published it with help from a printing shop. I made $1,200 and went on a holiday. It was called ‘No Names Book’. Also in that year ABC Radio bought one of my comedy scripts. They produced it and placed it on-air. It was just a short piece and I earned a few hundred dollars. More importantly it boosted my confidence.”

Jack wrote another five books whilst in Thailand all under different names. Two were dual language.

His satirical “dark tale of human decay” novel –  Get Rid of Glenda – is available on Amazon, as well as his new collection of short stores, Deviates from the Norm: Humorous Tales.

For the past four decades, his main employment has been in communications, with a focus on media and advertising. He has written advertising for radio and television, skits for radio, created and written TV series as well as full length TV specials. But today Jack much prefers the freedom of writing fiction: “Less constraints and much more fun. It gets a bit lonely at times but that is the life of a writer.”
