AusLit Australian Literature Anthology

February 2011 has so far been a very good month to me. Earlier in the month I received news I had made the final list for the 100 Stories for Queensland anthology, an anthology to raise money for those affected by the terrible floods at the beginning of the year. Today I have some more exciting news to share. My short story ‘Angel Blood’ is to be included in the AusLit Australian Literature anthology due to be released in April. The anthology features ten stories by a range of commercially published and emerging Australian authors.

A little about the authors involved:

Kerry Brown

JJ Cooper

JJ Cooper is the author of two action thrillers, The Interrogator and Deadly Trust.

Rebecca James

Rebecca James is the author of pschological thriller Beautiful Malice.

Fleur McDonald

Fleur McDonald’s novels Blue Skies and Red Dust feature strong female protagonists living on the land.

Michael Pryor

YA fantasy author Michael Pryor is the author of several series and stand alone novels, including ‘The Laws of Magic’ series and the ‘Doorways’ trilogy.
