Conventions, Ahoy!

Turns out I have a huge second half of 2015 ahead of me! Wow. First things first! I’m pleased to announced that I’ll be appearing on four (four!) panels at the upcoming Continuum convention in Melbourne. Continuum runs over the Queen’s Birthday weekend – this year from the 5th to the 8th of June. My […]

On Being a Hufflepuff

Nobody wants to be a Hufflepuff. I certainly didn’t want to be one. It’s all about the brave Gryffindors and smarty-pants Ravenclaws, and even the badass Slytherins. Being evil (or even scheming) is cool. Hufflepuffs are not cool. Well, actually, maybe they are. I was always the first person to decry my Gryffindor-ness, or to […]

Another Crack

I sent my Clarion West and Clarion UCSD applications off last weekend. What a relief to have it finally done! This is my fifth try for CW and my fourth for UCSD. I reckon I’ve gone through all of the stages of grief after being rejected in previous years. Right now, I’m feeling excited and […]

There’s nothing I love more than pulling one of my favourite books off my shelf and basking in the story, in the characters. It’s the […]

Here they are, in the interest of accountability. 1. Submit to Clarion and Clarion West. This will be my fifth crack and West and my fourth crack […]

QDSF: So Say We All

Today’s personal essay is one from me (you can read it here, without needing to back the project!) I’m so delighted and happy to have been asked to contribute an essay. I hope that you […]

Award Season!

I thought I’d do a round-up post on the work of mine that is eligible for awards this year. It’s nice to see a whole lot more runs on the board than in 2013 (I think it was just some flash?). So! I’m eligible for the Campbell Award for Best New Writer, as well as […]

Favourite _______ of the Year 2014

Chuck Wendig asked us what our favourite things of 2014 were. I’m stealing his list and posting a link to this because it’s my blog and I can do what I want! (Also, because lists like this are fun, and it’s a lovely way to wrap up a year!) 1) Favorite novelĀ of the year? Gonna […]
