JULIAN HALLS was born and educated in Sydney, Australia. He travelled overseas at an early age and has lived and worked in both England and Spain. After completing the Playwright's Course offered by NIDA in 1973, Julian went on to write over forty hours of television drama, as well as plays for both radio and the stage. Julian holds a degree in Fine Arts from the University of Tasmania and now lives in Hobart. This is his first collection of short stories. He is currently working on a novel with financial assistance through Arts Tasmania.

"The Death of a Drag Queen" is an eclectic collection, of mainly autobiographical gay stories, and, while not all centred on the character of Ross, do follow his early life in such touching stories as 'Finding His Kind' and 'Hearing Bernard's Lines' through to his more difficult realisation, many years later, of the ageing process portrayed so brutally in 'Excavating the Past'. These stories are often sad, witty, thoughtful and funny.
