Rachel Casey

I'm an aspiring writer from Dublin with a Masters in Creative Writing, and not sure what to do with it. I write about whatever comes into my head, but would ultimately love to write in the mystery/thriller genre. Although I do love a good re-write of a fairy tale.

Sarah Childs

I am a writer from the inside out. It grew in me and came out organically. I remember having one of my essays read out in class once, when I was in secondary school. I remember thinking...maybe? Years later, when I was working as an academic, my writer's spirit forced its way out of me. I've been writing ever since.

For quite a number of years, I have partaken in writing short stories for both the amusement of friends and that of strangers on the internet. Discovering this interest is no doubt rooted in the days of Performing Arts in my teens when I had ample opportunity to write short plays which would be used to further my scoring on the course. Although I still enjoy writing random short stories,...
