I have been writing for quite a few years and in 2007, my novel, Memoirs of a Vampire Hunter was published in Australia, although it is no longer in print. That, and the sequel, whch was not published - I chose not to at the time - is being rewritten and will probably be published on Smashwords.
I have also been published in magazines, although my style of writing - usually, but not always, black comedy and horror, is not for women's mainstream magazines.
I also write poetry, preferring rhymes rather than free verse.
I write because I enjoy creating something out of what might be an acorn of just a few words or a phrase that came to me or I heard in a normal conversation.
