I used to write “nice” fiction until I realized my characters kept suffering from nasty author-induced tragedies. Now I’m happy writing YA Horror and Dark Fantasy and chortling when I come up with a particularly juicy scene. I spend my day imagining evil plot twists and psychotic characters, and thinking up ways to make you squirm. But don’t worry, I’m really a nice person!
I’m a lawyer-turned-architect of words, a mother, a wife, and an Aussie. I have a wicked sense of humor, a very loud wolf-whistle, and a fascination for all things Young Adult. I kill cacti (accidentally), I collect dragons, I adore emoticons and exclamation marks (but never in my manuscripts!), and I used to have a dead fern called Prudence. Why? Cause everybody needs at least one dead fern in their lives.
I tweet occasionally, I blog religiously, and I organize Campaigns so writers can connect and network together. I love meeting new people around the blogosphere, so drop in to Rach Writes..., say hi, and come with me on this fascinating journey toward publication. Suitcases optional, but don't forget your computer!
