_______________________________________________

John Edmiston is a novelist, painter, photographer, songwriter and psychotherapist. Born in New Zealand he now lives in London where he has a private psychotherapy practice. His writing tends to explore the hinterlands of neurosis and psychosis and the brittle masquerade of normalacy. Peopled by seemingly-ordinary yet disturbed characters, often in extreme situations or carrying dark secrets, his fiction reflects his own interest in the human mind and unraveling its psychopathology. The sense of perpetual conflict between a descent into darkness and insanity and the redemptive power of the human heart to discover new and imaginative yet often flawed solutions is a reoccuring theme. The seminal creative event for his writing happened in 1988 when he fell into a series of involuntary trances and began a process of automatic writing. 'I had no idea what I was writing, where it was going, or what was going to happen. It was a total immersion in the unconscious, a world where images arose like those in a dream and had their own resonance, their own strange meaning. It went on for weeks and later I began to reproduce these trance states to tap into that vast ocean of images, their currents ... and the memories they seemed to invoke. The whole experience shaped my writing in that I lost any interest in structuring fiction in any kind of planned or pre-meditated or organised way. The words, the rhythms, the images and thoughts had their own path that would become clearer if I just took it one sentence at a time. It means I have to trust the creative process.'
