What's known as optimism

If you’ve stumbled upon this blog, you’re clearly lost. But welcome anyway.

This is a site I’ve set up in the event I get the chance to blog on topics other than other people’s novels (i.e. my own).

I have an excellent agent and a completed manuscript (or two), so I figured I should get me a URL. After many years of writing and rejections, even I admire my capacity for optimism!

In the meantime, I love reading, and have two other blogs on which I write about other people’s stories:

Other Worlds (mostly fantasy, particularly paranomral)

Great Stories (more literary fare)

You’ll find more to read there…

About Me

I’m the author of the Rephaim series and The Undercurrent.

For my day job, I’m a writer-journalist-professional communicator, where my writing involves a lot less profanity.

I grew up in regional South Australia and now live in the Scenic Rim with my husband and a retired greyhound.

If you’re interested in how I came to land a publishing deal, you can read the short version in this post from August 2011. There’s a longer version (in a guest post) here.
