D.M. Rowland

Dust Baby, fiction, March 1, 2008

When did you start writing? I had written on and off for years, and then a while ago someone suggested the possibility of actually getting something published, so I thought I would have a go...

When and what and where did you first get published? A few years ago. I was lucky -- my first serious attempt at a short story was accepted by Virgin Books

Why do you write? To exercise my mind, and my imagination.

Who is your favorite author? Your favorite story? My favourite story this year has been the Carhullan Army, by Sarah Hall.

Do you blog? No.

D.M.Rowland lives in the Lake District with an ageing siamese cat and a recalcitrant puppy. Her fee from Dust Baby is being donated to Poppy Z Brite's Cat Rescue.
