In 2013 I was Highly Commended in the Sunday Star-Times Short Story Awards. I was also Auckland Regional Winner in the National Flash Fiction Day contest, and judged UK’s Flash Fiction World’s quarterly competition.
My short stories have featured in Takahe, The School Journal and Radio New Zealand. I won the Lilian Ida Smith Award in 2009 and gained a Master of Creative Writing the following year. See my Slideshare presentation “Literary Benefits of Linguistic and Cultural Hybridity” for an overview.
Recently, I’ve had fun combining my love of Instagram with my flash fiction – and posting street art. Click here to see my PinUps experiment, which has been featured in the New York-based Awkword Paper Cut zine.
I also have a series of 10 filmic flash readings on YouTube; and a flash story on Slideshare, where the user clicks – or turns the pages – at their own pace, and the story unfolds like a tiny silent movie.
Other loves are opera and beer.
