I am a debut writer of speculative fiction and steampunk, Gaslamp and Historical Fantasy.
I have written short stories, SF/comedy, non-fiction articles and speculative fiction and was short-listed by the Australian Literature Review in their 2013 Murder/Mystery Short Story Competition. I have just published a series of short stories and novella. I am currently working on a full-length novel manuscript.
I live in South Australia with my family and her ancient Devon Rex cat. I am not keen on the South Australian summers.
I love chocolate - dark preferred – and rarely refuses a cup of tea.
What do you hope to find at The Steampunk Writers & Artists Guild?
I hope to find like-minded writers, kindred spirits, get inspired and maybe some advice, on occasion.
I'm in because I drew blueprints for a water ship / aerial / spacecraft, It runs on steam, and utilizes a mechanical energy storage and generation device.Within the vessel is a garden, for entirely self-contained food.The one aspect I haven't entirely worked out is H2O generation, i.e. fuel, or perpetual fuel.The ship also has a gamer's deck, in the event things get dull, or the moment strikes.Happy Sailing,SJSee More
