Adrian Hanks was born in the UK in 1963. In the early 1980’s he started to read socio-political books by authors such as Aldous Huxley and Franz Kafka and his favourite, George Orwell.
Adrian first read 1984 whilst sitting inside an old apartment, in a surreal city surrounded by a wall in that very same year. That wall was the Berlin Wall.
Adrian Hanks lived within the confines of the wall in West Berlin for several years from 1983 before immigrating to Australia in 1987.
Almost 30 years later, after reading 1984 again, for about the fourth time, the words ‘It was that her waist had grown thicker, and, in a surprising way, had stiffened’ leapt off the page and into his creative mind.
Adrian Hanks, who works as a master coach, counsellor, psychotherapist and teacher, lives by the ocean on the East Coast of Australia and loves to help and inspire people to live their lives with more passion, purpose and joy. He, himself, between writing, teaching and speaking, loves to spend his days creating, walking on the beach, in the bush or to the top of some mountain range, playing his didgeridoo, body-surfing and swimming in the ocean, meditating or being out with family and friends.
