David Versace writes fantasy and science fiction in Canberra, Australia. His publication history is here. He has been an Aurealis Award finalist three times in the Best Fantasy categories, for the stories “The Lighthouse at Cape Defeat”, “A Moment’s Peace” and “The Dressmaker and the Colonel’s Coat”.
He is a member of the Canberra Speculative Fiction Guild. He is a voracious consumer of speculative fiction, comics and wine, and plays the bass guitar and too many video games. He has written almost 100 weekly flash fiction stories and a handful of longer ones.
He has worked in the Australia Public Service for over 20 years, somehow without making a career of it. One day soon he may retire, but until then he remains focused on the frequently ignored and thanklessly invisible lifeblood of well-regulated government: corporate governance, risk management and business continuity.
He lives with his wife Fiona and their two children. They tolerate his interests with patient good humour.
