About Ian

Ian Cochrane is an Australian writer calling Melbourne home.  He is a member of the  Australian Society of Authors and resident writer with Bayside Visual Arts group, Sandy Street Art Project Inc.

Ian has also penned three books of short stories and several tabloid travel and food features with his writing described as –

“… observational and anecdotal, his vignettes illuminated by the assorted zany characters he meets. Anyone with an open mind and a sense of humour, will find resonance in Cochrane’s adventures.”

… and this website?

Stories are divided into five categories or geographical areas, sometimes said to be of the `travel’ genre, but often more to do with the people.

But then there are other stories, obvious orphans of sorts… sometimes not so obvious. These leftovers have been tucked in a dedicated category-cupboard called `Utopia’, or `a good place’. Here there are muddled mishaps, musings on life, loss, music and books, bibelots and blog awards, along with interviews, poems and assorted jottings.

Feel free to browse. Hope you enjoy the site – and please – do leave a comment. Rest assured, that in this age of instantaneous LIKES and DISLIKES, real feedback is appreciated.
