Hi! I’m Sabrina, an Australian zoo guide and aspiring writer, gearing up for my Masters in Earth Science. I’m a big fan of rocks, writing, and can provide fun animal facts on request. I’ve done a lot of academic writing, but fiction is my first love, and I intend to query this WIP when complete.
Current WIP is a rough draft (65 000-75000 words). It’s a YA Horror (not overly gory), but I write SFF too, so am happy to critique that.
Favourite authors: Patrick Ness, Adrienne Young, Rory Powers, and Shubhangi Swarup (totally out of my chosen genre, but I adored her book)
Love to see: adventures, anything that makes me cry, sapphic romances, plots that tie together at the end so so perfectly
Open to most topics, if they’re dealt with respectfully
TW: body horror, death
18y/o Willow wishes her life were a love story. A wire sculptor with severe OCD, she craves structure in her otherwise turbulent life. When she returns to her birthplace on Scotland’s remote isles, Willow’s not expecting to find summer romance. Then again, she’s not expecting her wire sculptures to grow teeth either.
Between falling for Bryn, the brash daughter of a local fisher, and coming to terms with her parent’s disappearance, Willow realises her wire creations are taking on lives of their own. And unless Willow can structure her life to perfection, she risks unearthing the same powers that turned the once forested moors barren.
I’m actually a huge wimp, but I like writing horror anyway. I’m focused solely on YA at the moment, and love SFF (particularly darker but emotional but funny Sci-fi, I just like Sci-fi with heart)
I’d just like to connect with other writers
Here are some best practices for reaching out to a potential CP:
- Include the link to your own CP Match profile! You can find it on your Dashboard. Don't have one yet? What are you waiting for? Anyone with a WriteOnCon.org account can make one!
- Introduce yourself a little, and say what appealed to you about their listing.
- Respect what's listed here in their profile. They took the time to fill it out, and they've included this information for a reason. Don't send a message about a book they specifically say is a Hard No, for example.
- Offer to swap a small sample of your works, so you can see if you're really compatible. First chapters are a good starting place.
- If one party no longer wants to continue the interaction, it's nobody's fault. Sometimes finding the right CP takes time.
Happy writing and CPing!
