'Christopher Cyrill is the author of the novels The Ganges and its Tributaries and Hymns for the Drowning.  He has also published numerous stories, articles and written a number of broadcasted radioplays. For many years he was the fiction editor of the much mourned HEAT Literary International and the fiction editor of Giramondo Publishing. He has taught at Sydney, Macquarie, Newcastle, Wollongong, A.C.U and New South universities and currently runs his own writing academy and mentors writers.
He has recently completed his third novel, part one of the trilogy Crown & Anchor in which one of the principle characters is a writer named Sumac. He no longer works as a personal trainer due to a damaged shoulder but he can still run the 100m in less than 12 seconds (maybe).' (
