Ian Cochrane is a writer calling Melbourne home, a member of the Australian Society of Authors, an itinerant traveller and the editor of TravelnRavel.com – a wandering bird’s-eye overview of most things even vaguely related to travel.
Wanderlust lured him to Europe, the Americas, Southeast Asia and the South Pacific, while work has taken him to India, Africa, the Australian outback, Korea, and the highlands of Papua New Guinea.
Ian launched his first book – Indian Summers: Mumbai and Beyond, a collection of 13 tales on the paradox of modern India – to critical acclaim in 2011. Find it HERE or throughout Australia and New Zealand via Dennis Jones & Associates.
Various e-books are also available through AMAZON and Ian’s Australian Outback short story `A Splendid Memory’ is included among the non-fiction 2013 Cowley Literary Award finalists.
Ian has also penned 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.”
