W.R. Gingell is a Tasmanian author who is definitely not getting old. She loves to rewrite fairytales with a twist or two—and a murder or three—and original fantasy where dragons, enchantresses, and other magical creatures abound. Occasionally she will also dip her toes into the waters of SciFi.

W.R. spends her time reading, drinking an inordinate 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.

Card Caper Monday, series 3, begins!

First: to refresh your memories…

Friday's Child by Georgette Heyer
"Hold onto your hats: I'm about to rave about a Georgette Heyer novel.

This one has quite a large cast for your typical Heyer novel - let's see, we've got an alpha couple, a beta couple, three sidekicks and a villain. These eight people share approx..." Read more of this review »
