My short story ‘Inversion’ available

My short story “Inversion” (a pinch of Gothic horror, a touch of psycho-talk, a re-reading and re-telling of the Greek Minotaur’s legend) is published in the Yellow Booke, HERE.

This is the illustration for my story kindly provided by Old Tales Press’ editor M. Grant Kellermeyer:

Inversion Illo

I love it, love the stark b/w contrast and little details that really connect to the story and to the way I envisioned this retelling of the myth.

You can read my story “Inversion” alongside others in the Yellow Booke for free HERE.

Short film script ‘Mar-ri’ 2013

I was reminded of this short film, written and filmed in 48 hours for the Mental Health film challenge. I wrote the script as quickly as I could, and then we filmed and it was super tiring and stressing and such great fun!

Here’s the film:

The film didn’t win the challenge, but received a special mention. The brief was to show how pervasive and limiting mental issues are (whatever the specific illness: anxiety, depression, etc).  I thought to make it a Presence, tangible for the sufferer, always present (hence the title) and also something to fight against, with support. Support is fundamental.

Very interesting post on several points of interest to authors and translators (and illustrators), such as copyright, mentions, contracts, and more.
