Eliza Green tried her hand at fashion designing, massage, painting, and even ghost hunting, before finding her love of writing. She often wonders if her desire to change the ending of a particular glittery vampire story steered her in that direction (it did). After earning her degree in marketing, Eliza went on to work in everything but marketing, but swears she uses it in everyday life, or so she tells her bank manager.
Born and raised in Dublin, Ireland, she lives there with her sci-fi loving, evil genius best friend. When not working on her next amazing science fiction adventure, you can find her reading, indulging in new food at an amazing restaurant or simply singing along to something with a half decent beat.
How does your writing process work?
I try to work one book ahead. I attended a talk where Irish writer, Sinead Moriarty, talked about her own writing process. She said when she finishes one book she already has another one written. It gives her breathing space. I liked that idea. I don’t like to rush the writing process. It happens more naturally if the deadlines are my own crazy ones rather than it coming from outside pressure.
Readers are vital to any author’s survival, but it is a double-edged sword. With readers comes tons more pressure! Good pressure, I might add.
Why do you write what you do?
I love science fiction. You have permission to come up with futuristic worlds as far-fetched as you like. I admit that I can’t write too far into the future like some Science Fiction writers do. Peter F Hamilton is one writer that springs to mind. I have to believe in the story if I want others to, and a story grounded in reality is where I feel most comfortable.

Dieselpunk ePulp Showcase

If you like your stories in handy bite sizes, then this is the book for you. There are four different ones to digest: Tales of the Aether Age, Pandora Driver, Trouble Shooter and World of Manana. I’m not entirely familiar with Dieselpunk but I guess I would describe it as futuristic simplicity. At first glance, it seems as though you’re stepping into an ordinary world but not everything is from that era. Think of Boardwalk Empire, only more technologically advanced.
I particularly liked Trouble Shooter. It reminded me a little of Joss Whedon’s Firefly series. If you’re familiar with the series, you will know what I mean when you read that particular story. The story is more detective than cowboy, but the essence of the two is the same.
The other stories are different enough to engage you as are the voices in which they’re told. Each one was easy to follow and brimming with action. My suggestion? Dive right in. You never know. You might discover your new favourite author.
