ROSIE BEST: One of the Twelve Voices Chosen for SCBWI-BI's Undiscovered Voices Anthology 2012

* Congratulations, Rosie, on achieving a coveted place in Undiscovered Voices 2012! and welcome to tall tales & short stories.
The floor is yours, please tell us all about yourself, your writing journey and anything else you'd like to add.


I'm a 28 year old from London and I work in the publishing industry - as an editor at the very Working Partners Ltd that sponsors the anthology. I've worked as a freelance writer for them too, one action adventure middle grade series and one standalone YA fantasy novel.

I tweet quite a bit as @opportunemoment and I'm a huge nerd for comics, genre fiction of all kinds and choral singing.

* Could you tell our readers all about your winning entry and why they are going to love it!

Skulk is a YA fantasy/horror. The first chapter sees a teenage girl, Meg, going out in the middle of the night to graffiti the walls of her school - but the plot takes a magical twist when a dying fox shapeshifts into a man right in front of her.

I hope that readers are going to love the turn into the weird, and the way that the fantasy elements mingle with reality. I hope that they're going to faint at the horror bits, cringe at the embarrassing bits, and swoon when Meg finally meets a boy worth the time of day.

I didn't get a chance to bump into you on the night of the launch, Rosie, but wanted to let you know that your extract was one of my favourites! A rebellious female graffiti artist and a shapeshifting fox culminating in one climactic night scene--I was totally there and hungry for more! Good luck with everything!
