Award-winning contributing poet to

LA BOOK FESTIVAL AWARD
PACIFIC RIM BOOK FESTIVAL AWARD
LONDON BOOK FESTIVAL AWARD

Multi-award-winning author/poet Hans Brinckmann, born in The Hague, suppressed his dream to embark on a career in writing and joined the Far Eastern staff training program of Amsterdam's Nationale Handelsbank fresh out of high school. He was assigned to the bank's Singapore branch, and then to the Kobe branch in Japan, eventually rising to Tokyo Branch Manager at age 29. 

Always the "reluctant banker," he nevertheless continued to pursue his career, which eventually took him to New York, where he served as president of the Institute of Foreign Bankers, representing two hundred and forty banks, and as president of a Dutch-American foundation active in cultural exchange. In 1986, Queen Beatrix made him an Officer in the Order of Orange-Nassau for "cultural and professional achievement." 

He retired from banking in 1988. Since then he has lived in London, Amsterdam, Sydney and Japan, developing his career as a journalist, lecturer, poet and writer of fiction and non-fiction prose. He has published two collections of short stories, a highly-acclaimed memoir, a post-war history of Japan and a book of poetry. Three of his books have been published in Japanese, in translations by Hiromi Mizoguchi. IN THE EYES OF THE SON (Savant 2014) is his first novel.

In 2008, Brinckmann – together with his friend Ysbrand Rogge – held a month-long exhibition in Tokyo of photographs taken by them in Japan between 1951 and 1974, which drew 50,000 visitors. Brinckmann now lives in Fukuoka, Japan. He maintains two websites: www.habri.jp (bilingual English/Japanese) and www.habri.co.uk (English).

NICHOLAS BYLOTAS
Author of 
     STORY TELLER (Savant, in production)

After high school came college under an academic scholarship. I dropped out the next year to hitchhike and experience the world, and began maintaining a journal. My journal was self-published later while I served as an "able-bodied seaman" in the Navy.

Since then, I've never stopped writing. I became a submariner, fixing the library on my fish while learning how to pilot it. When my time in the Navy ended in 2016, I enrolled in New Mexico State University to become a horticulturist. 

My school books quickly filled with poems, lyrics, graphic novel scenes, and other day dreams, and, in sharing them, I realized that I was a natural storyteller and author. Dropping out of college a second time after receiving a bachelor’s degree in business, I now know there is no risk I wouldn’t take pursuing that for which my heart was made.

DAVID ALLAN WILLIAMS
Author of 
     LIGHT SURFER (Savant 2012)

Originating from a small, dilapidated suburb west of Sydney, Australia, David Allan Williams has tried his hand at many things before turning his intellect to writing. His professional career as a technical trainer and specialist in computer hardware took him to some of the best parts of America, Asia, Europe and the tropical islands before he decided life should be more challenging. He then turned his hand to warehouse and operations management for a few years before feeling like life needed yet another bend to put him on the right path. Thus, Light Surfer festered in his head and computer for a couple of years when the journey suddenly became a "strap-me-in-and-let-gravity-take-control" kind of ride. Writing has now become the career path of his choice, and with his slanted view of reality, this indeed could be a long ride.
