Beau Windon

Beau Windon is a neurodivergent writer of Wiradjuri heritage based in Naarm. His greatest loves are YA and speculative fiction, meaning he spends most of his time writing quirky stories about quirky people in quirky situations. His current writing focus is on developing his hybrid memoir (quirky stories about his quirky self) and poetry about all the dark goo slathered around his brain. Beau was a failure in primary school and high school, but managed to turn things around to be pretty swell in higher education. He’s passionate about creating greater awareness about neurodiversity and mental health issues.
