After growing up listening to my father reading fables, folklore and fairytales, it’s no surprise I love stories. As soon as I could read, my nose was firmly ina book. I love reading, listening to audio books and writing.

My day job is as a senior specialist of public relations, but I write and blog in my spare time (along with interning for a publisher). I have short stories in anthologies: THE BASICS OF LIFE and THE LIFE AND TIMES OF CHESTER LEWIS. My short story Karma was also runner-up in The Australian Literary Review’s short story competition. I regularly co-host Pitch Madness and am also involved in Pitch Wars, Nest Pitch and Pitcharama.

As well as blogging here, I also blog with YAtopia and Aussie Owned & Read, where I contribute to discussions on the love of literature and the publishing industry in general.

I have a gorgeous husband, aka the hottie hubby, and two wonderful boys. Well known for my fantastic taste in shoes, I’ve actually been stalked by women wanting to know where I got my high heels from. I also have a love of fur-babies, with cats and guinea pigs.

STARTING BID: $10

TURNAROUND TIME allow two weeks for query critiques + 1st chapters, four weeks for partials, and six weeks for full critiques. Donors will discuss turnaround times with winners. All winning bids are guaranteed. Should some unforeseen event happen, money will be returned to winner or the winner may choose to have Brenda Drake provide the critique.
