About Elaine

Having self-published a small anthology of science-fiction stories in 2014, I'm now editing my first full-length novel, and have ideas for a second and third. Also working on my second anthology , and writing & producing an online trailer for the first novel. Have also entered three scripts for Create50's 'The Impact' competition. Finding ideas is not a problem - just the time to complete them!

History: In 1980, I founded the Appreciation Society for 'The Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy', ZZ9 Plural Z Alpha, writing, editing and producing a quarterly newsletter, organising conventions, general and specific PR.

In 2007, after many years during which I read a lot, watched a lot of movies & TV but did very little that was actively creative (unless you count raising a son!), I began writing again. In 2013/2014 I took courses with Faber Academy in creative writing/writing a novel, and editing and screenwriting courses with The Writers Workshop.

I like to tell science fiction themed stories with a human heart, mix the ordinary with the extraordinary. My characters are not super-heroes; they are ordinary people, learning to cope with the extraordinary - they are you and me.
