Glenn H. Mitchell is the author of weird fiction including two novels: the science fiction, Nowhere, and supernatural thriller, Nine-Tenths of the Law...

Glenn H. Mitchell began writing horror stories at the age of eight. After secondary school, he was picked from thousands of applicants for Australia’s first accredited radio and television production course. He took advantage of the diploma’s broad curriculum to major in journalism, scriptwriting and creative writing.

His career began bizarrely as an extra in TV commercials. Eager to make amends, he worked in television as a presenter, writer, editor and producer. He created programs for the ABC, Foxtel and SBS, including co-writing infamous Australian comedy series, ‘Pizza’.

Mitchell switched to music journalism and toured the country to interview artists for music shows. He played bass guitar in bands that supported acts like Suicidal Tendencies, Powderfinger and the Foo Fighters.

Despite writing hundreds of stories, Mitchell had never attempted to sell his work until 2014 when his first novel Nowhere was published. It was followed by Nine-Tenths of the Law in 2015. Mitchell’s short stories have appeared in Shine, The J.J. Outré Review and Crack the Spine Literary Magazine. He was a winner of the Australian Horror Writers Association’s 2016 Annual Flash & Short Story Competition and will be on the judging panel for the 2017 competition.

Mitchell currently lives in Cambodia where he writes fiction, wears very large sunglasses, drinks margaritas and avoids employment. A member of the Australian Horror Writers Association, he is dedicated to the art of scaring people.
