Writer Superpowers (specialist subjects):

I am an ardent feminist and similarly interested in ideas of masculinity and its ideals. MIDWINTER is populated entirely by men. I am also a very earth bound writer, passionate about natural landscape and its effect on humanity and am concerned about a new generation losing touch with that it means to be human in relation to the natural world. I support animals rights and environmental and social justice. I am a strong advocate for the African continent and its literature.
