Could you please tell us a little bit about yourself?

Well, I’m a mum to one human and four fur babies (one dog, two cats, and one mini horse). I love to grow things… in pots… less weeding. I love to write. And I love to dance.

Many of her first writing experiences were copying down song lyrics. She graduated to scientific reports when she studied a nematophagus fungus in the Zoology department of the University of Otago, trading all traces of popularity for usefulness… then traded both for fiction. Mum of one human & four fur-babies.

    The book had so much promise. But, you left so many things unanswered. Perhaps less sex and more information about the different races; the way they came about and the reasons for the current relationships would have been good.

    I realize wanted to be able to give it more.

      OK, thanks.
      It was tricky weaving in all the background of the races when it turns out that what everyone thinks is wrong… I had Anya being a little bit knowledgeable with her book-learning… but everyone has a lot of learning to do in Book 2… I guess it depends if I gave people enough reason to come back for it…
