The irrepressible Georgina Penney coshed me as I was walking down a dark alley. When I came to, I found I’d been tagged. I figured I’d gotten off lightly as I still had all my internal organs.
Georgina gets around, you can find her here, here and here. And her super-funny, mimsy-friendly book is here.
What am I working on?
When I first started writing, I used to work on one thing at a time (to completion). But now I’m all like ‘fuck that shit’ and currently have three manuscripts on the go (yes, it's manuscript ménage). But all three have paranormal elements because I’ve discovered how much I love a kick-ass heroine, death matches and pariahs. But don’t worry, kids, there’ll still be plenty of dirty, filthy, crotch-rotting sex mixed in there.
How does my work differ from others of its genre?
I’m a big fan of all things unusual so you’ll find my work stuffed to the gills with that shizz. For example, I have cane-toad racing in one story and in another, a woman who tricks a man into paint stripping her house. And then everyone has sex happily ever after (because that's how all my stories end).
Why do I write what I do?
Life and other random sh*t . I mean sometimes you see or hear something and it just sticks with you, you can’t get it out of your head, and it’s fun to play with that image or snippet or whatever and see if you can’t build it into a story. I think a lot of authors have subconscious magpie tendencies in that we see a thing here, we read a thing there, and it all comes tumbling out in our stories.
I’m also guilty of writing to right wrongs. That is, writing things that don’t happen in real life but that I think should (according to my own weird ideas about social justice). So in my stories it’s the plain, narky girl who gets the handsome man (and boffs his brains out something severe). Sometimes she even gets two handsome men, woo-hoo! And if someone grows a pair of fangs, or wings, or slays the undead in between the boffing and the romance then I’m really happy because that stuff just doesn’t happen enough in real life.
How does my writing process work?
My brain oompa-loompas tell me what to write and I obey.
I would tag another author, but I honestly don't think there are any left in the world who haven't been tagged yet. If I'm wrong, leave a comment and I'll tag you.
