Rod Whitfield, Journalist

Rod Whitfield

Rod Whitfield is a retired musician and long-time music writer. He joined his first band on drums way back in 1987, playing in myriad original rock acts before hanging up the sticks and retiring in 2015. In 1995, he joined Forte Magazine, Geelong’s premier street press magazine, as a journalist and has not stopped writing about music since. He has written for The Music, UK Prog Magazine, Beat, was The Buzz Magazine’s chief rock and metal writer for eight years, and has worked for countless online publications and zines. 

Since retiring from the original band scene, he has become a novelist, and at the time of writing he is completing work on his fourth book, the third work in a trilogy based on an upcoming fantasy/combat/adventure video game, as well as designing the narrative of the game itself. Keep an eye out for the release of Brides of Vampira in the coming years.
