Writing

Writing

My first love is Speculative Fiction in all its forms. SciFi, horror, fantasy. Dark weird, new weird, weird weird. Urban decay. Cyberpunk. Philosophical dystopia and contemporary fairytale. Urban post-apocalyptic meta-narrative with post-postmodern twist.

You know, the classics.

I also have a thing for crime. The darker stuff. Noir. Political thriller. Strange contemporary realism dramas with twisted characters in dark settings.

Sometimes I just like to mix them all up together, shake, stir, and see what comes out the other end. Anything to tell a good yarn.

I’m a graduate of RMIT’s Professional Writing and Editing program, have an honours degree in literature somewhere in my dark, distant past, and have spent more years than I care to count as a business and non-fiction writer. Now I’ve returned to my passion for fiction, with short stories appearing in anthologies and a novel in the works.

Some anthos and magazines I have work in:

 

When it comes to non-fiction, I’ve pulled the corporate and copywriting portfolio offline because I’m not actively chasing freelance work in that space anymore (but if you’re looking for someone, give me a holler; I like to play coy, but won’t knock back work that chases me.)

I was a regular blogger for some time, documenting my fun-filled experience of assisted reproduction: Fun with IVF 

Let Me Digress itself was once a far more active blog too, back when I used to get political, because what the internet is really missing is yet another white, educated, middle-class chick yelling opinions into the void. Anyway, the archives are worth listing here: Blog Archive
