THE LIFE AND TIMES OF CHESTER LEWIS
Published in Australian Literary Review's THE LIFE AND TIMES OF CHESTER LEWIS, an integrated short story collection.
YA Urban Greek Mythology-Inspired
KARMA was a short story I wrote specifically for the Australian Literary Review's YA short story competition and it was the runner-up. My prize was feedback from Australian YA author, Sara Foster. The story work's on the concept that there are people responsible for keeping the world in balance by dishing out karma, both good and bad, on people.
Works in Progress
DESERTER: YA speculative fiction. The follow-up to SLEEPER.
KARMA: YA urban Greek mythology. I'm taking Sara's advice and turning Karma into a novel. I'm expanding the Greek Mythology aspects of the story as part of this. Apportioners roam suburbs delivering karma to those who deserve it, the good and the bad.
DIRTY RAINBOW: YA dystopian. Thousands of years in the future, men are extinct and women have created a Utopian society where there is no need for money, there is no war or famine and everyone is beautiful. But beauty is only skin deep.
THE LIVING LIST: YA contemporary fiction. Seventeen-year-old Kaylee Belt loves making lists. Her latest one is all about achieving the perfect senior year.
