Pierz Newton-John is a writer, psychotherapist and software designer. Pierz’s short stories have been widely published in Australian literary journals and anthologies, and his critically acclaimed collection “Fault Lines” was published by Spineless Wonders in 2012.
As a psychotherapist, Pierz worked for many years in private practice and in the correctional system. He wrote a book on post-prison reintegration which for several years was provided to all prisoners released from Victorian gaols. More recently Pierz has pursued an interest in technology, working as a web developer for the not-for-profit counselling organisation On the Line.
Pierz’s interests span a wide spectrum. In addition to writing fiction, he plays classical guitar, speaks German and Spanish, and is a dedicated chess player, swing dancer and meditator. He originally majored in the History and Philosophy of Science and retains a deep interest in the intersection between science, philosophy and spirituality. He is currently working on a novel.
