Biography of Jonathan Drane

Jonathan Drane is an award winning Australian non-fiction writer and poet. His personal works concentrate on manhood, and his life experiences as a father, son and husband.

Although Jonathan started writing poetry at the age of 12, his works remained hidden until he was 50 years old.

Events in his own life triggered an epiphany in his 40's, which led to a spiritual journey, and the creation of life stories which we can all relate to.

His autobiographical works provide searing accounts of how he sought the truth within his own life, and his own escape from depression, which he traced to an event in his early childhood.

His poetic works include mystical stories to verse which mirror the human condition, such as 'The Curlew Song' and ' The Viking Ship'.

To read Jonathan's work is to face your own life head on. We welcome you to the challenge and the magic of seeking the truth in your own life.. whatever that is.

The Man From Silverwater

Homebush Bay the market place
A coffee shop an aged face
A man came up to meet me once
He wasn’t from my time

A pawn shop and an old straw bale
A metal top a coffee tale
We sat amongst the brimming crowd
He held my gazing eye
