BD Branchy


After growing up in Victoria, I moved to Queensland in 2002. Currently, my schedule involves juggling work, work, work, and work, no time for sleep, and writing - but I hope to knock out a couple of those works someday soon.
Developing interesting characters, and delivering stories with purpose, are the key things I seek in my writing.
I don't own a cat, but there's a stray which occasionally hunts outside the window at night.

Smashwords Interview

Tell me about the Matilda Mathildis Series
Matilda Mathildis is a series of stories about Matilda, and about others who impact on her life.

Each story is different, however they all come under the general umbrella of realistic fantasy: that is fantasy that could theoretically exist in the real world (sorry, no witches on broomsticks).

Many of the stories are free. Those ebooks which aren’t have a free sample read, so kindly enjoy.
What is your writing process?
My process is that I press these little modern rune things, and letters magically appear. I don't understand how it works, it might be satanic, but it does.

Smashwords book reviews by BD Branchy

  • Obsolete Protection on Sep. 19, 2015

    I couldn't decide on 2 or 3 stars. The writing began rather jagged, before managing to settle into a rhythm. I had trouble feeling anything for the protagonist. He certainly didn't care for him, relate to him, and his emotions felt artificial. The world setting was perfect. As a prologue, did it encourage me to read the rest. Sadly no.
  • Zombie Bride on Sep. 20, 2015

    It's not illegal to use a comma, particularly when a sentence is 40+ words. Grammar doesn't need to be perfect, but really. The only horror here, is how this story hasn't been edited. It's positively dreadful. Sorry, but it is.
  • Finding Finnegan on Sep. 26, 2015

    This is a good first draft. The language is like having a foam block, marked out, but the cutting, and filling hasn't been done. Quote: "I leapt over the prone form of a trooper who came sliding down the stairs and sprinted forward, pushing men in front of me." This sequence of events makes zero sense. Saying this, it isn't horrible, and with work, it could have been very good.
  • The Last Trump (A Farce Of Politics) on Nov. 14, 2015

    I was hoping for something insightful, or maybe funny, or maybe interesting in another way. In the end, I don't even know what your intent of this piece is. I'm sure your other works are better.
  • Lady of the Wasteland on Dec. 13, 2015

    I like your writing. The first half of this story is almost perfect. I found the latter part did lose the plot a bit, a little frazzled, but maybe if you have a fan club, they'll love it. I'll see if there's any of your stories which sounds like they'll be to my taste.
  • Illegals Not Allowed on Jan. 04, 2016

    The biggest tyranny is where only one viewpoint in life is permitted, and any deviation of that is death. Wrong = right, tyranny = freedom, but I guess that every despot thinks they're better than that. It's called delusion, and this isn't good delusion at that.
  • Miss Terry Charm, Merry Kris Mouse & The Silver Egg on Jan. 23, 2016

    I would encourage anybody who starts reading this, to read it until the end. The ending really makes this story.
  • Dead Man's Trivia on Jan. 24, 2016

    Really good solid world, characters, and storyline. I was able to picture the surroundings, and I cared to see what what happen with the main characters. Only tiny things, I didn't really feel as if the prime character was female in the beginning, and some of the paragraphs were a bit long, but these don't detract from an excellent story.
