I am 39 years old and live in Auckland, New Zealand. I work full time as a Personal Assistant for a rescue helicopter, but have dreams of writing full time.
I have a partner, Will, and a cat, Sushi.
I have always been interested in writing and apparently used to carry around a notepad and pen when I was a child (or so I'm told). The moment I knew I was "hooked" though was when I did a 'writing for film' course at my local unitec. Over the past 19 years I have written a number of poems (mainly rhyming and haiku), short stories, short plays and short film scripts.
The last 2 years have been the most rewarding for me. I had a 10 min play accepted into a worldwide short play festival (Short and Sweet Festival), which made it into the top 10 (out of 1,100 plays). I have also had a couple of stories published in a book which my writing group put together, called 'Writers in the Library'. We have also produced a radio show of our stories/poems and are in the process of getting this produced into a 3 disk set.
At the beginning of this year I also completed a Diploma in writing for children.
I am very excited about what is to come and am pleased to have found this site.
