2016

This was a massive year! It seemed to fly by and yet so much happened. Some of the highlights… I took a lot of selfies, including this one to do with Contact. In writing stuff, I loved attending conventions and having Uncontainable published in Apex Magazine. But I really tried to focus more on what […]

Back Home and Swancon Highlights

And I’m on a couple of panels, one about critique and another about the portrayal of science in science fiction. I’m also doing General Crafting for the family stream and having a kaffeeklatsch. If no-one comes I’ll enjoy […]
