About Me


Flash Hawkins

Flash Hawkins here.

After 15 years working as a freelance sports journo in the sports obsessed paradise of Australia, I have developed a reputation for being as hard hitting as journos get. Standards with me are high. I give credit where credit is due but far too many journos use kid gloves when taking shots at the sporting elite in this country. Not me, nuh uh. I take no prisoners. If someone deserves a whack, I’ll be first in line with the willow.

After an entire career solely using a pocket yellow notepad and trusty typewriter, a friend bought me a fandangled computer and told me about blogging. Once I was reassured it wasn’t anything to do with snapping off pythons on the throne I was convinced to give it a try.

Most of my articles are snapped up  by classy rags like the Kimberly’s Boab Babbler, Queensland’s Canungra Times and The West Australian for top dollar.

So as not to deprive my legion of fans, I’ve decided to put up my unsold articles, FOR FREE, here in this blog for your enjoyment.

So spank that desk rodent of yours and enjoy the not quite best I have to offer.

That’s it for now, until next time, you’ve been Flashed!
