I completed NaNoWriMo 2008! A 50,000 word story in a month. Now to actually finish the rest of the story…
In my time on RedBubble, I have co-hosted the Short Stories Group, Spherical Scriptings, the Vampire Group, Blood Red, Full Moon Rising the Werewolf group, the Sci-fi group, fantasy art and Monsters Inc. For the moment I’ve dropped group hosting due to real-world workload.
I’m currently a biologist by day (pathology genetics, B.App.Sci (Hons I), PhD). I started developing photography and creative writing to keep me sane during the ordeal of the PhD. I didn’t really have time to be doing it, but my mind clutched at it and wouldn’t let go.
I enjoy escapism, probably more than most things. A lot of Neil Gaiman’s writing strikes a chord, particularly when he’s avoiding the real world. Then anything that looks like a fairytale.
I’ve worked in photography and sold images in a number of ways and places :)
I’ve got a story published at AustralianReader (which was the Editor’s pick for March 2008), Greenbeard (which was also selected for their first print edition), and Bewildering Stories, a review at Greenbeard, a story in issue 1, 2 and 4 of the WMG Blogazine, a travel story on MeetURPlanet.com and had an eBook available at Mystic Moon Press before they closed.
I won the Writer’s Market Group eBook competition, won best fiction and best story overall in the last Short Stories of the Soul competition (zine isn’t up anymore), two finalist spots in the Spirit Walks competition, a finalist spot in the Sugar High competition as well as second overall, and won a Twisted Tales competition.
I’ve also placed 3rd in DBA Lehane’s non-RB writing competition, had a 2nd and 3rd place in Flash Fiction group challenges, and another three 3rd places in Twisted Tales competitions, as well as a third in the monthly showdown of finalists at Twisted Tales.
Curious about what music I’m listening to? You can see it all on my LastFM page.
