Hello everyone, I am a 27 yo mum of one (so far) from Australia. I love writing, but usually only work on short stories. I have one novel that I have been working (I use that term very loosley!) on for probably 12 years. Now that I am a stay at home mum, I am hoping to work on it a bit harder and get somewhere with it finally. I am very excited about the short story competition and have already started working on one of the upcoming topics. Most of the books I read would be largely considered pulp fiction, popular novels or airport books so I am not as cultured as like to pretend, but I read things that are a bit of fun and, with luck (and a bit of skill I hope...), that is what my polished work (it will happen) will be.
