Now based in rural West Wales, R. S. Pyne is a freelance science writer/geoscience researcher with a PhD in Micropalaeontology from the University of Aberystwyth. She used to be an Iron Age Celt (not in a previous life; as a member of Prytani - The Iron Age Celtic reenactment society)and has a good appreciation of the weaponry of this period. Getting hit in the face repeatedly with a shield boss tends to do this to people and perhaps explains a lot. Non writing interests include growing carnivorous plants and orchids, Muay Thai kickboxing and cryptozoology

If all else fails, I take my dogs for a walk in the woods and watch the red kites and the ravens. Sometimes, I think writer's block is the mind telling you to take a break.(less)

Work on a darker fantasy series is progressing well and a historical horror novella is currently with a beta reader.

I have also been very busy with my post-doctoral research. This month, a research paper on the Quaternary Ecostratigraphy of the Somerset Levels will be submitted to an international peer reviewed journal.(less)

Motley - new name Harley Q - is a black tortie (black tortoiseshell. I had to look this up on the internet). She is now curled up above the drier in the utility room and looks very comfortable. Looks like she is here to stay!
