Ceinwen Langley (pronounced Kine-Wen) is an Australian television writer and author.

Born in a desert town with less than 300 people, one TV channel and nothing to do, Ceinwen learned to entertain herself by reading and making up her own stories. The habit stuck, and she's been trying to make a living out of it ever since.

Ceinwen has worked in development on several local children's shows, taught and spoken at schools and universities and worked as a storyliner and scriptwriter for long-running soap Neighbours. Her short stories have appeared in magazines online and off.

It's a little inspired by my lifelong love of Labyrinth (the 1986 Jim Henson film) and Miyazaki films. I had the idea for this story about a year or so ago, and the original plan was to turn it into a graphic novel with a friend who does incredible artwork, but the project sort of fell into limbo and he's given me the go ahead to use the story anyway. It's a lot more action and a lot less dialogue than I'm used to writing, but it's a lot of fun so far. I can't wait to share it with you guys! (less)

“It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end… because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing… this shadow. Even darkness must pass.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Two Towers
