If the book we are reading does not wake us, as with a fist hammering on our skull, why then do we read it? ...A book must be like an ice-axe to break the frozen sea within us. - Franz Kafka
Junior doctor working in Australia. I write both fanfiction and original fiction and poetry - very tiny list of published work kept here. Fanfiction is stashed at almondinflower. I'm a graduate of the 2009 Clarion South.
I'm a Christian, evangelical and charismatic by background (and mostly by creed), although to paraphrase Bono, I am the runt of the litter. I love speculative fiction, manga, theology, learning new languages in a haphazard and dilettante manner, and literature generally. I like the thought of making the world a better and more equitable place, but have not done even a fraction of what I should or could.
