Hi, I'm Tori. I'm trying to rewrite the 'it's my baby and I luuuv it' fantasy novel I started several years ago, because I think if I hack at and twist and bleed it, there's a good story there. I'm also working on my short fiction and trying to get it published. I like trying to work with the weird and the folkloric and the narrative unconventional, and trying not to be (too) pretentious with it. And I'm trying to get better at focusing and committing because my output isn't very high.

My favourite fantasy writers (in which I include magic realists) are China MiƩville, Neil Gaiman, Phillip Pullman, Angela Carter, Italo Calvino, Salman Rushdie and Oscar Wilde. I also really love certain children's fantasy authors, such as Alan Garner, John Masefield, Joan Aiken and C.S. Lewis.
