Award-winning author Anna Finch lives in Melbourne, Australia, where she works as a teacher of English and Humanities by day and as a writer by night. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Legal Studies with a major in Literature and Law and a Master of Teaching secondary.

After participating in NANOWRIMO, she discovered she could write a novel and decided to just go for it—she hasn’t looked back since. Voiceless, her debut novel, has recently won the Firebird 2022 Book Award in the mythology category. She hopes that her Young Adult Urban Fantasy novel will delight Coming of Age readers and adults alike. It is a subversion of the classic The Little Mermaid story. Prior to writing her novel, she had been a serial poet and short story writer.

I'm currently about halfway through 'These Violent Delights' by Chloe Gong, which I am absolutely loving. I also planning on finishing 'The Deathless Girls' by Kiran Millwood Hargrave and 'Save the Cat Writes a Novel' by Jessica Brody which I started reading earlier this year but haven't finished. (less)

It really depends on the situation. For example, if I'm in the middle of a story or novel and I know what needs to happen in the scene but I'm completely stuck and don't know how to move forward, I'll do one of two things. I'll either skip the scene or chapter and go to one that I can actually focus on writing or I'll write the scene in a completely different POV just so I can get the first draft done. I did this when writing the first draft of 'Voiceless' actually. I didn't know how to write a couple of scenes in Moriah's POV because I was completely stuck so I switched to Abdiel's (her father) and Micheal's POVs which were in 3rd person.

On the other hand, when I know I need to start writing a particular story or novel but no matter what I do I can't focus on it or write anything down, I generally do something else. Sometimes I will literally write anything a poem, a short story or flash fiction. Basically anything to get me writing again. Otherwise, I'll do short courses about writing or publishing to get me interested in writing again. (less)
