“Fuck it, Ash. I’ve told you I can’t be with a man going nowhere.”
“I wouldn’t call the middle of the SCG nowhere, Kaz.”
Jason Davis, a 36-year-old journo from Brisbane, has worked for The Courier-Mail, Sydney Morning Herald, Sun-Herald and various well-known mags.
He is also a published author.
Let’s pause here for a moment of awe. Respect. Envy.
His first book, Baby Steps, was published in 2006, and is, in his own words, “the crazy true tale of my wife and my experience picking our way through the bizarre world of IVF.”
Now he is writing his next contribution to the literary world as a blog, a story called The Curly Situation.
Jason, a self-confessed crime fiction addict, is also a cricket fan, and this story has been brewing for a few years now.
The story revolves around Curly Gibson, an Aussie cricketer whose talent for accidental sporting success is surpassed only by his talent for getting shot at.
It’s grand. The characters are interesting, the writing is clever, the story is engaging.
Jason updates the story twice a week and there’s also a tips jar, so if you love it, cross his e-palm with e-silver (or e-notes).
“I hadn’t been this close to someone since, in a moment of weakness, Mark Waugh had loaned me his box.”
I predict greatness. Go there. Read it. Love it. Do as I say.
