Author Name: Uni Brown
Story Title: The Healers
A woman suffering loss finds the healing she needs, but at what cost?
What inspired you to write this story?
My husband was in the hospital having surgery and while waiting for him to get out I stopped at the chapel.
How long have you been writing?
I think I was seven. I wrote a story about how a paragraph was a pair of giraffes and a paradox was a pair of ducks.
What genre do you usually write in and why? I dislike labels. I write stories in whichever genre best fits the overall theme or moral of a story I want to tell. I'd like to think my stories get people thinking. If pushed I'd have to say probably speculative fiction, or mystery with a touch of romance or paranormal. I write fiction and non-fiction, 99% guaranteed there's going to be an animal in it.
What else are you working on writing at the moment?
Slow progression in a paranormal fantasy series, a mystery, a few short story ideas and a coffee table book of my dog photography. I'm trialing a process of open writing online on a near daily basis using another name (basically first draft writing in public with immediate feedback.) Nothing like adding a little stress. :)
What advice do you have to give to new writers?
Don't sit on your ass all the time. You have to get out and live.
How can people discover more about you and your work?
