Poetry, Australia and John Holland


Dear friends,

I introduce to you all my first guest blogger and author: John Holland from the beautiful Australia!  As you all know, I love to highlight beautiful places and wonderful people. 

John Holland grew up in outback Australia. Living on cattle stations (ranches) his father Jack Holland managed in Queensland, the Northern Territory and the Kimberley.

He has been a stockman (cowboy), miner, road worker, speech writer/media officer for a Queensland state member of parliament and a newspaper columnist.

John now lives in Townsville, tropical North Queensland and writes full time.


His writing credits include:

His work has also appeared in the anthologies:

His work has also appeared in the poetry magazines:

Danse Macabre

Presently working as a co-author with Californian author Nia Simone on a novel set in Australia and America. 


I look forward to sharing some of his amazing poetry sometime :-)
