Hi, hello there, how are ya?
My name is Lysa. I’m a writer, university graduate, editor, podcaster, none binary lesbian, bog hag, decrepit Marvel fan, and crochet crone. I use my experiences as a mentally ill member of the queer community and my history in fannish spaces to create stories that I hope inspire and thrill my readers. My primary genre is fantasy, but in my upcoming projects I am delving into science fiction and other speculative fiction.
I’ve been writing since I could pick up a crayon, and writing consistently for the last three and a half years. I’ve completed four books and published three, which you can find at the links above. My dream is to be able to sustain myself on my writing, and I can only do that if people want to pay for it! So I’m always learning, and along my journey I want to help others as well. You can find my services at the link above.
My upcoming projets (original work):
- short novella series about two orphans who collect, refurbish and sell junk
- book of short stories revolving around my favourite fictional queer characters (fanfiction with the serial numbers filed off, basically)
- an analysis of queer content, sexuality, gender and relationships in the long-running, hit tv show Supernatural
- sequel to Daughter Of The Valley
If any of that sounds like it’s your jam, stick around and I’ll have more fun stuff waiting for you soon!
I live and work on the unceded lands of the Yaggera and Turrbal people of the Meanjin Nation, also known as Brisbane. I pay my respects to their elders past, present and emerging.
