W.R. Gingell is a Tasmanian author of urban fantasy, fairy-tale retellings, and madcap science fiction who doesn’t seem to be able to write a book without a body suddenly turning up. She solemnly swears that all such bodies are strictly fictional in nature.

W.R. spends her time reading, drinking a truly ridiculous amount of tea, and slouching in front of the fire to write. Like Peter Pan, she never really grew up, and is still occasionally to be found climbing trees.

Trust me. I know I’m a mess. I’ve just sneezed, so my cheeks a

Quotes by W.R. Gingell  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“If it came to a choice of being loved without respect or respected and not loved, I wanted to be respected. And JinYeong promised both.”
W.R. Gingell, Between Family

“what was the point in being supposedly more intelligent or stronger than humans when there was no kindness or compassion with it? What was better about being more intelligent if you were also more cruel? What was the point in being more logical and unemotional if that just made you a psychopath?”
W.R. Gingell, Between Frames

“Eurion wrinkled his nose and went behind the curtain again. “I think you’re beautiful, Lady,” he called back to her. “So you should think I’m handsome.”
W.R. Gingell, Lady of Weeds
