What to expect…

 

Welcome to Loving Life in the Rain

With fingertips hovering over the keyboard… I promise to treat my reader with respect. I will only type words and phrases that have some semblance of cohesion and can form themselves into reasonable, if occasionally argumentative, groups. I will endeavour to offer positive comments and reviews focused on the world of the creative writer, with special love and attention to the genres of Science Fiction and Fantasy. I promise to visit as often as I can and leave for your perusal and comment pieces of my creative world.

A little bit about myself… I am a science fiction novelist and short story writer. My work is both informed and inspired by the years I spent living and teaching in the UK and West Africa. I currently work as the Reviews Editor for Vector – the critical journal for the British Science Fiction Association. You can find me on Twitter @SueOke and on LinkedIn.
