Time Tripping with Doctor Who

When I was a child there was one tv show I desperately wanted to watch, since everyone else was raving about it, but I wasn’t allowed to because my parents deemed it ‘too scary’ for a child of my age. Years later, in my early 20s, the ABC (Australian Broadcasting Commission) began to replay several […]

Sword & Laser Interview

It’s up! It’s live and wriggling! The Sword & Laser interview is here! Thanks to everyone who left questions. I had a ball answering them and chatting to the lovely Veronica and Tom. And I have to admit, seeing as I was at my own interview and knew what happened, what I was most anticipating […]

Fearsome Journeys

This one’s a bit late as I’ve been immersed in writing Thief’s Magic and reorganising our library. The wonderful Jonathan Strahan has put together an anthology of fantasy with a tilt toward the military and sorcerous, and I was delighted to be invited to submit to it – not just because it’s nice to be […]

Epic: Legends of Fantasy

I’m still catching up on posts I couldn’t publish while this site was being fixed. Most frustrating of all was not being able to get this one blogged. I could have posted it while I was at Supanova, but then it might have disappeared too quickly among posts about the expos. Better to wait and […]

Click for a close up: SO glad The Traitor Queen isn’t a paperback.

The release date of The Traitor Queen (in August) is slowly and steadily drawing near. I now have a cover to show off: Fabulous, as always. I think this is my favourite cover for this trilogy now. Orbit posted a Cover Reveal last week, with more information, and you can go to the

The Sekrit Projekt: My Gift To Fans

So what was all the sewing, photo-taking, sketching and drawing leading to? Well, I wanted to do something with the character sketches other than just put them on this website. So had the drawing scanned and dragged out my old graphic design skills to make a little complimentary gift for fans of the Black Magician […]

An UnCONventional Guest

It’s official: I’m going to be International Guest of Honour at UnCONventional in Auckland next year. I’ve been wanting to go to the New Zealand convention for years, but in recent years the dates clashed with Aussie cons, publicity trips or, this year, the European Tour. Now I will be going as a guest – […]
