My first published story ‘Angel Blood’ is due for release in Australian Literature: A Snapshot in 10 Short Stories at the end of this month. In the lead up to its release, I was lucky enough to be interviewed on The Australian Literature Review. In the interview I answer questions about the story ‘Angel Blood’ and my writing in general. You can find the interview here:
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:
JJ Cooper is the author of two action thrillers, The Interrogator and Deadly Trust.
Fleur McDonald’s novels Blue Skies and Red Dust feature strong female protagonists living on the land.
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.
Sam Stephens is an aspiring novelist. His award winning short stories Daddy and The Surgeon can both be found on The Australian Literature Review website.
Michael White is author of Equinox, The Medici Secret and The Borgia Ring. He also writes the ‘E-Force’ series under the pseudonym Sam Fisher.
Belinda Dorio and Sonali Rajanayagam complete the author list for the anthology.
