- Name: Damien Linnane
- Bio: Damien Linnane was born in Sydney, Australia. After working a disparaging collection of jobs following high-school, he spent over five years in the Australian army as a combat medic while completing a degree majoring in psychology. In 2015, at the age of 29, he was sentenced to two-years imprisonment for a series of crimes, including the firebombing of a home, with the sentencing magistrate finding that his motivation appeared to be 'vigilante action'. His debut novel, Scarred, was written by hand while he was in custody. Since his release from prison, Linnane has completed a master's degree in information studies. He has written about the prison system for the news website 10 daily, and has been interviewed on the subject by many publications. He currently works as a ghostwriter and a portrait artist, and is completing a memoir.
