This sounds interesting. Thanks for the info. I'll add it to my 'to read' list.

I'm halfway through the sequel (The Queen Of Attolia) and thus far it's just as good as The Thief. A big thank you for stopping by. :)

I will be publishing the prologue of Silvana on my blog over the next few days. The first two parts are up now.
For a moment Nimo poked distractedly at a hole in a tree with a stick, then he grinned. “Not quite. We'll tell him that Fabiom said he wanted to show us something deep in the woods and then he ran off...

It is not always easy to write knowing that what you are writing is not intended for inclusion in your finished work. It almost seems a 'waste' of effort – as if every word that flows from our pens (o...

Story
Tagline
I've set myself some exciting goals this year, including setting my fantasy novel, Silvana, loose upon the world!
Introduction
I have been writing 'seriously' since the age of seven.  I started with a pencil in a school exercise book - The Adventures of Bunny Bunny. It had chapters and all!
In 1989 my very long short story, Bronwen's Dowry, won a place in the inaugural Ian St. James Literary Awards and opened all sorts of doors for me.  Since then I have been writing fiction and non-fiction, teaching creative writing and editing, as well as being involved in theatre-in-education, radio journalism and magazine publication.
Other than writing I love Samoyeds, Anglo-Nubian goats, cooking, reading and being with friends.  
I am very interested in spirituality, theology and faith-journeys.  Creativity, for me, is a key element of how we are 'made in God's image'.
I am very happily married, the mother of a wonderful teenage daughter and a bit of a wanderer.  These days, home is New Zealand.  
Bragging rights
I'm fructose-free.
