What I've been working on

It has been a long time since I updated my writing-focused blog. Since I did, I have sold four short stories to various magazines, achieved two semifinalist and four honourable mentions in the Writers of the Future contest, and obtained a doctorate in semiconductor physics! Perhaps the latter explains my lack of concerted new writing on this blog and elsewhere.
Despite mostly writing a 80,000 word novel-sized thesis last year, I sold stories to Nature Futures, Digital Science Fiction, Orson Scott Card's Intergalactic Medicine Show and the anthology Transtories, although I was saddened to hear of editor Colin Harvey's untimely death prior to the release of the anthology, he was a great writer and a really nice guy.

In addition to my other writing work, my main focus for the last few months has been an exciting new project that I can't reveal anything else about! This secret project is a collaboration with a number of very talented people and I'm excited to show the world what we've been working on.

So this is mainly a post to say in true Granny Weatherwax style that I aten't dead yet. Plenty more writing to come from me, both here on the blog and hopefully in fictional form.
