Cat Sheely


I live on the South Coast of New South Wales and work at being a writer. My interests include reading, writing and discussing speculative fiction and I have a keen interest in new scientific discoveries (astrology, space exploration, cosmology, physics, psychology etc). I like to read about Australia, the political arena and environmental issues. I also love to knit and cross-stitch when I'm not into books, on the computer writing or out kayaking, I'm swimming and golfing.

I'm a member of the Eurobodalla Fellowship of Australian Writers (EFAW) and the Canberra Speculative Fiction Guild.

Smashwords book reviews by Cat Sheely

  • Write The Fight Right on May 01, 2011

    Short, concise and very informative. Written from a background that gives the content solid credibility it is something all writers who need to write or understand a fight scene (or more for that matter) needs to know.
