About this item: A query and first three chapters of your manuscript critique.
Donated by …
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.
