About Me

IMG_3440My name is Stephanie Heijkoop (Heykoop). An Australian freelance web designer turned phlebotomist, turned writer. I wrote my first novel at 13, printed it out and tried to sell it to other students for about for 40c each. I guess that was my first independent published novel.

Since then I’ve been writing everything from sci-fi to romance, to non-fiction, and have even published in magazines. I am currently working on a M/M romance novel for adults. It’s still a work in progress and you can check it out here.

I love cheesecake, Bryce Courtney, and any movie with Julianne Moore or Billy Bob Thornton. I could also watch Shawshank Redemption until my eyes bleed and read Broken, by Daniel Clay until the words turn to dust form page-turning abuse.

I’ve created this blog to kick start my authors platform, as well as writing articles with helpful lists and advice for fiction writers, non fiction writers, columnists and bloggers, so that we can all become better authors together.
