About Me

My photo
I am a writer, editor, reviewer and dance teacher based in Perth, Western Australia.

My books

The first two novels of my trilogy, The Talismans, are available as e-books from Smashwords. I do have paperbacks of The Dagger of Dresnia at the low price of $AU25 including postage within Australia. I also have a short story, 'La Belle Dame', in print - see Mythic Resonance below. The best way to contact me is via Facebook!

Buy The Talismans

The first two books of The Talismans trilogy were published by Satalyte Publications, which, sadly, has gone out of business. I hope to see my books back on Amazon under a new publisher in the near future.

Satima Flavell said...

Yup, we're pretty lucky over here. Lots of good writers, most of whom love cons! I hope Adelaide soon gets to be as lucky:-)

Simon Haynes said...

Thanks for putting together a great mini-con, Satima. I enjoyed myself all day ;-)

Cheers
Simon
