BRONWYN CALDER made her start as a writer through the 1990s by publishing short stories in science fiction and fantasy anthologies, women's short fiction anthologies and literary journals. Bronwyn's day job is book editing and proof-reading with her higher level creative passion this century being the fantasy world of "Askar" where her characters engage with rather than escape from issues reflecting those of our world.
Bronwyn's recent writing includes movie scripts with her indie film-making husband John Calder for his collaborative group. The animated short "How Europe Got Its Name" has had film festival success. The next 2 short movies have won competitive funding and are now (end 2009) in production.
