Hi - welcome to my page! Have a seat. Want a coffee?

I'm a bit of a @MargaretAtwood fan girl. Three of my stories have been winners in her contests on WP:
THE LAUGHING JAIL - Top Ten Winner in the @Hulu #MyHandmaidsTale contest.
CLOSE TO THE BONE - Top Five Winner in Margaret Atwood's The Heart Goes Last Fiction Contest.
PRIME - Top Five Winner in Margaret Atwood's Dear 2114: Future Library Writing Contest.

I'm working my way through a longer piece - THE UNDERWATER REAL ESTATE AGENT. Updates are mostly weekly but random parts of the book. Not looking for perfection with this work - just consistency and, you know, finishing something.

Other stuff I like: NK Jemisin's The Broken Earth series; Joseph Heller's Catch-22; Kazuo Ishiguro's Never Let Me Go; most things by Shirley Jackson; Suzanne Collin's Hunger Games series; Alexandra Petri's columns in the Washington Post; Vox.com; Barbarella Queen of the Galaxy; Harold & Maude; Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory; silence.
