Nick Earls was admitted as a PhD candidate on 28/4/2014 and has passed confirmation and mid-candidature review.
His PhD project involves writing and publishing Wisdom Tree, a series of novellas, and explores the possibility that technological advances have changed the prospects for novellas.
Prior to publishing the novellas, he had published 20 books for adults, teenagers and children, including novels such as Zigzag Street, Bachelor Kisses and Analogue Men. His books have won awards in Australia and the UK, and appeared on bestseller lists in both those countries and the Amazon Kindle Store. Perfect Skin and 48 Shades of Brown have been adapted into feature films and five of his books have been adapted into stage plays.
