In New Zealand we have a continuing debate about whether we should write 'New Zealand fiction' or just fiction. I just write fiction. Sometimes it is recognizably New Zealand, sometimes not.
I like a diverse range of writers. I like Carver, and I love the magical realism of Jorges Luis Borges. I like Kafka and Nabokov. I dream of writing a great short story some time. I like the novels of Carson McCullers.
I've been fortunate enough to have a few stories published, both in heard copy and electronic format.
I work as a mental health nurse, and I teach mental health nursing. I'm studying for a PhD in mental health law.
