Luke Kondor started writing on his computer in his early teens and never looked back… and now he has very sore eyes. He runs and produces a short story podcast called The Other Stories, which has amassed over 10-million downloads. In 2015, he won the best Low-Budget Film Award at the London Short Film Festival for a film he made in 7 days with no camera and no money. Currently he works from a dining room table in the middle of Sherwood Forest and lives with his fiancée, Cat, their pet cat, Oscar, and their larger, angrier cat, Alaska, who is actually a dog. www.lukekondor.com
