About/Contact.

Hey Everyone, thanks for stopping by.
So you want to know a bit about me, huh?
Well I’m many things. A reader. A writer. A mother of 2. A wife of 1. Christian. Australian.

Writing is my dream. Reading is my hobby. I collect books. I have over 800 of them. I also collect bookmarks. I used to collect stamps, sort of still do.

Reader Me:

I try and read and review 2 books a week. One international. One Australian. I love books by Australian authors. We have some great writers here and I love telling the world about them. I read mainly YA (all genres). When I do read adult books they are most likely going to be epic fantasy, but I love all speculative fiction and I enjoy contemporary women’s fiction as well. I am not ashamed to say I adore romance, because, c’mon, what’s better than love?

UPDATE: I AM NO LONGER TAKING REVIEW REQUEST FROM ANYONE UNLESS YOU ARE AN AUSTRALIAN PUBLISHING COMPANY OR AUTHOR THAT I AM ALREADY DEALING WITH OR HAVE DEALT WITH IN THE PAST. Sorry but I just don’t have the time to take on more review copies as I try and focus more on my own writing. Thank you.

Writer Me:

I’ve been telling stories since I could talk and started writing them down when I was 8. It will take an awful lot to stop me – like death.

Some say I’m a dreamer. That I have my head in the clouds. But I say that’s better than having two feet planted firmly on the ground.

I define myself as a storyteller. Writing is my life. Through writing I get to record all the worlds I have been blessed with discovering, worlds I would love to share with you fully one day, as soon as I can convince a publisher my worlds are worth sharing:)

I spend most of my time in fantastical worlds with fantastical people, both I have created and those created by others, and there is no other way I’d rather spend my time.

I work hard on making my dreams come true. And I believe in myself, because if I don’t, who else will?

You can contact me by email: sharpewords@gmail.com (Please no spam!)

And you can follow me on Twitter, Tumblr and Goodreads (links in the side bar) if you feel inclined.

Thanks for taking the time to find out a bit about me πŸ™‚

  1. I believe in you too! Keep writing and who knows, one day others will be able to explore and interact with the fantastical worlds and characters you have so graciously shared.

  2. Don’t let anyone steal your dream. Keep on writing and working, because it will come true. I’ve been writing for over thirty years, and though it’s hard, I have been blessed with selling some of my work to publishers over these past decades. Never quit, never give up…this is the secret to success in a nutshell.

    1. Thanks for the nomination, I really appreciate it, but I have actually been nominated for this award once before so I won’t be doing it again. Thanks for thinking of me and congratulations on your Liebster πŸ™‚

  3. You’re welcome and completely understand – these awards are a bit of a PiTA – kinda like chain letters at school! Please do just accept it as recognition from someone who enjoys your work.

      1. Yes, some minds are much more terrifying than others. I prefer the less scary, although my mind sometimes comes up with stories more scary than I thought I’d be able to.

    1. Sorry Claire for taking so long to get back to you about the Liebster award. Thank you for the nomination, I really appreciate it. I was nominated for this award awhile ago so I won’t be doing it again, sorry. I really do appreciate it though and am glad you love reading my posts because I love reading your too.

      1. Hi Rochelle,
        That’s alright, I understand. Thanks for getting back to me, I find the nomination to be a compliment to your fellow bloggers. I hope you have a wonderful New Year!
        Cheers,
        Claire
