Anomaly's Maiden, fiction, Sept 1, 2008


Birthdate? June 29th

When did you start writing? At ten, I choreographed and 'wrote' a ballet that no one ever saw (which is a good thing as land bound hippos dance better than I do).

When and what and where did you first get published? Greenpeace published one of my poems in their newsletter when I was eleven.

Why do you write? To tell the stories no one else is telling.

Why do you write Science Fiction and/or Fantasy? I write fantasy because deep down, I'm a superstitious peasant. Every bump in the night, every blip on the radar is a ghost/witch/demon. It's just how I'm wired.

Who is your favorite author? Your favorite story? Shakespeare and Moliere and every author I've ever read. My favorite story changes by the day. Right now I'm really into Karen Chance's work.

What are you trying to say with your fiction? I often think of my stories as twisted fantasies. I always try to do something different or explore a dynamic that other writers have neglected.

Do you blog? Where? I blog at: http://twistedfantasy.typepad.com/

If you could write your own epitaph, what would it say?  Watch your step. I can still hear you and if you pee on my gravestone, I'm coming to get you.
