Vixen Phillips was born in Ballarat, Australia, in 1975. Mostly, she writes, programs computers, and plays guitar and keyboards, but in former lives she’s also worked as an audio engineer, in & around various media production studios, as a graphic designer, and in computer sales. Trapdoor is her first novel, but she has also released a novella, Narcissism, and is working on a new dark steampunk work of fiction, The Amorpheum Key, due in 2011.

The author's website states that one of the genres she writes in is "literary / lyrical trance." One would be hard pressed to think of a better description for Vixen's style of writing, which features beautiful prose that isn't superfluous or pretentious.
In our post-modern world that seems to be flooded with commercial fluff, Vixen Phillips's work is emotional, daring, and a breath of fresh air. "Narcissism" was a pleasant read and well-paced, wonderfully visual and descriptive, and is a great introduction to the imaginative mind that fuels the storytelling craft and talent of Vixen Phillips.

I greatly enjoyed this well written and imaginative story and I'd certainly recommend it for anyone looking for something a little offbeat.
