Short stories & travel reports from a life spent living, working and exploring the globe.
Getting Leighton Literature off the ground has been a long and challenging but thankfully rewarding process. I really couldn’t have done it had it not been for a select group of truly amazing people. So I’d like to take this opportunity to recognize the folk that deserve to be mentioned.
Thank you to my father Dave, mother Beverley, sister Natalie, brother Cory and ex-wife Silvie, who’ve always been incredibly supportive of my writing. The same could be said of the unbelievably encouraging Emma Dawson and the late Caroline Henderson.
Thanks to Sarah Ozanne, the most inspirational teacher I ever had.
Cheers to Jessie Wang, who first coined the term Leighton Literature.
A tip of the hat to Anthony Ragucci, who custom designed the Leighton Literature logos.
Muchas Gracias to Daryl Wonderboy, Mary Phillips, Pierre Vinck, Lily Wang, Mrs. Liuzhou, Liu Yu and Julie Ligon for their unwavering readership, even as I smash out an article every bloody day! And a special mention to David Duggan, LL’s special counsel, posting schedule adviser and all round number cruncher.
For anyone I’ve failed to specifically mention, and indeed to all the people who read regularly and take the time to comment, like, share and all that crap, I thank you too and kindly ask that you not to hate me for any perceived oversight.
