My name’s Tamlyn. I live in Melbourne nowadays, but I grew up in Western Australia. I write speculative fiction, and with my short stuff I tend to jump from genre to genre. Some things I like: reading books (duh), games (I mostly play video these days, but I like boardgames and rpgs as well), watching cricket and football (Aussie Rules), the outside even though I spend most of my time inside, good food.

I also have a dragon in my backyard. This causes some problems with the council, but the neighbours don’t complain because he saves on heating bills even for them. I am secretly a ninja and less secretly very bad at ninjaing.

(…. I don’t have a backyard. One day. And then I’ll get the dragon as well. I’m totally a bad ninja though.)
