Posted: March 4th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: writing | Tags: , , , | No Comments »

Why don’t writers write novels that involve technology? Well, they do – just not often. Prescient themes of privacy, artificial intelligence, alternate reality, identity and gaming all come together in my new  novel The Game is Altered – a super-contemporary piece of techno-fiction that asks the question: where do the boundaries of reality now lie? Read my recent article, on the Writers’ Hub, about the problem of reconciling technology and literary fiction.

hubAfter my reading at writLOUD in August, James Vincent, organiser, editor and general litlover, asked me to write a feature about multicultural literature for WRITERS’ HUB.

You can read my offering, Blurred Edges: Multicultural Fiction and the Role of the White Author, here.

Writers’ Hub is an amazing resource. You can sign up for alerts on Facebook and Twitter, and if you do you’ll be joining a growing community of writers.
