About J-A

Hello!  I’m an emerging Australian Speculative Fiction writer, writing in the Fantasy genre (although I’d love to turn my hand to Science Fiction one day).  My work combines a passion for storytelling with an interest in people and how they work. 


Having been selected for the 2008 inaugural Orbit/QWC Manuscript Development course for my first book, I’ve been inspired to make writing my vocation ever since.  I’m now writing my second book, the first in a fantasy trilogy. 


I also paint when I can find the time, which I admit isn’t often at the moment.  I believe that creating is the meaning of life, and look forward to the rest of my apprenticeship!


I aim to update my blog once a week, as I need to balance blogging with writing.  I hope you’ll join me.

    Not easy this craft, called writing.
    Will read some more if you don’t mind.
