Little is known about the apparently quiet W. Freedreamer Tinkanesh. The few unearthed bones are still disconnected: dreams, books, no gender, tattoos, wolves, invisible energies, permanent puzzlement. W would be (in alphabetical order) a versatile artist, a chocolate fiend, an independent musician, and a tree hugger.
The cats know more, but refuse to talk: one will stare you down; the other one will fight you.
W’s writings have appeared in unknown, obscure zines and in the last ten years in various anthologies: ‘Write Now’ (UK, 2001), ‘Threads’ (UK, 2009, edited by Cassandra Lee aka Shawn-A-Lee McCutcheon-Bell), ‘Eclectica’ (2011, edited by Andrea Dean Van Scoyoc), 'No One Makes It Out Alive (2012, edited by Hydra M. Star).
W. Freedreamer Tinkanesh is a member of The Gothic Creatives Association, and The Bermondsey Square Writers.

Sid Wasgo, as the title of the book indicates, is a bit of an outsider. Totally obsessed with the lesbian music scene of London, Sid is herself a former musician, artist, lover of tattoos, and completely and totally uncomfortable in her own skin. Sid is a ‘cutter’, a drinker, and longs to live a life free from being tied to a gender. She has physical problems, mental issues, and is literally in love with Death. She fills her time and nights with concerts, writing, and time spent with friends, which she seems to have plenty of...even if she doesn’t allow them to get close.
At the start of the book, Sid’s life if very ‘normal’. A reader who has spent any considerable time in the music scene or lesbian bars will find the situations and characters of the first half of this novel easy to related to and identify as classic music/lesbian types. However, while Sid is busy attending shows and making friends with the members of her favorite band, Second Look, there’s a vampire stalking and killing concert goers. It’s when, Joy, the concert going vampire, sets her sights on the nearsighted Sid that things for the young woman start to get a bit weird...okay a lot weird.
From this point the storyline and plot of the book gets quite complex. It is in fact complex from the beginning with transitions from real life to almost dream like excepts from stories penned by the main character and flash backs to long ago deeds done by the various vampires Joy has known. There are also the characters of Life and Death which add to the already teeming cast of oddities and outsiders. By the end of things time itself will be bent.
If a reader is looking for a well-written, but unusually told story, this book is a must read.

"Outsider" by W. Freedreamer Tinkanesh, provides a fascinating ride through the minds of multiple abstract characters, and their interactions with one another. Although, at times the characters' stray thoughts and actions are fierce, even terrifying, the penetrating glimpses into the world of alternative lifestyles and beautifully constructed obsessions make the story impossible to put down ... no matter how horrified the reader may be. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in the world of 'so called' aberrant behaviours and desires; but beware, Tinkanesh, will take you to a place, where you will ultimately identify with her characters ... in ways that you never expected.
