I write fantasy with strong women characters.
I’ve published 3 books as me – Mage Heart and the Aurealis award winners Fire Angels and Aramaya, and one book as Rebecca Locksley – The Three Sisters. My short stories have been widely anthologized, appeared in Meanjin and read on the ABC.
My favourite writers are Jane Austen, Angela Carter, Sara Douglass, Janet Evanovich, and Gail Carriger.

My current life ambition is to see an erupting volcano.

Stevie Wonder
“You can't base your life on other people's expectations.”
Stevie Wonder

Chris Abani
“What I've come to learn is that the world is never saved in grand messianic gestures, but in the simple accumulation of gentle, soft, almost invisible acts of compassion.”
Chris Abani

“Saving nature' then, might not just mean a last-fence stand to preserve shrinking islands of Wilderness by keeping people out of them. Through restoration, we might escape from our locked dichotomy between the twin roles of destroyers and preservers and find a more rewarding middle way as facilitators of - and participants in - natural processes.”
Paddy Woodworth page 2.

Margaret Atwood
“Men are afraid that women will laugh at them. Women are afraid that men will kill them.”
Margaret Atwood

First Dog on the Moon
“The government is like a horse - the only reason a horse doesn't kill you is because it doesn't want to - it could kill you without any trouble.”
