I hold a Graduate Diploma in Creative Writing, and a Bachelor of Arts (Honours). I achieved First Class Honours in the latter. Both qualifications are from La Trobe University in Melbourne, Australia.
More importantly, I am a widely-published writer. I have been published in leading SF&F markets Daily Science Fiction and Heroic Fantasy Quarterly.
If you'd like to see a complete list of my published work, or to read a sample, please visit this page of my personal blog. All of the markets listed there were, at the time I submitted to them, classified as paying 'Pro' or 'Semi-Pro' rates by the writers' database Duotrope.
I was stared at, hooted at, grinned at, chattered at, by monkeys, by paroquets, by cockatoos. I ran into pagodas, and was fixed, for centuries, at the summit, or in secret rooms: I was the idol; I was the priest; I was worshipped; I was sacrificed. I fled from the wrath of Brama through all the forests of Asia: Vishnu hated me; Seva laid wait for me. I came suddenly upon Isis and Osiris: I had done a deed, they said, which the ibis and the crocodile trembled at. I was buried for a thousand years, in stone coffins, with mummies and sphinxes, in narrow chambers at the heart of eternal pyramids. I was kissed, with cancerous kisses, by crocodiles; and laid, confounded with all unutterable slimy things, amongst reeds and Nilotic mud.

Thomas de Quincey.
