Profile Information

About Me:
mother, lawyer, former activist, and writer since aged 11. I was a (political) performance poet, and published in anthologies etc. But not since the 90s. Have read SciFi and Fantasy on and off since childhood. Like the use of speculative fiction to examine current social trends/ problems. Concerned that there are not enough of us writing SciFi- do black people not see themselves around in 1000 years time? I've got 5 novels in various stages of development. I use NaNoWriMo competition each year to lay down 50,000 words for a new novel. Looking to help and receive help...

I am very impressed with your Life-Ideas and experiences. Almost responded to your "Birthday" wishes until I read more.  Yes, as we age, it is the quality, not the quantity, of our years which truly define us. Stay Smart and Safe.

Hello Ms Wills. I was hoping to make your acquaintance and have sent you a friend request. I would be interested in hearing more about how science fiction is perceived in the UK and wanted your input.

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
