Alex Villepique

I got hooked to Sci-Fi before I started elementary school. Later, I became an astrophysicist in the hope that it will bring me to space, but sadly, it did not. Being born in a tiny, impoverished country does wonders to put additional obstacles in your path. I have lived in 4 different countries, the current one being the USA. 

I have written Sci-Fi stories since my teen years and I published few in my native language. And now, decades later, I'm trying to publish stories in English. As a part of my 'writing in English' practice, I have a blog where I encourage people to use their brains. 

Stay tuned! I will write more stories.

Author and mother of an autistic boy. I wrote about my passion, autism, in "A Parents' Guide to Early Autism Intervention," which is a useful guide for parents who are just beginning their autism journey.

Max is a crane who cannot fly, but must learn to take to the sky in order to save a town trapped by an evil witch.

The Girl Who Knew Too Much

Heather Smyth

Heather Smyth.

I’m in my mid fifties, happily married to a wonderful bloke and we have two adult children, both married, two grandchildren and one gorgeous old golden Labrador. I live in Healesville, Vic. in a semi-rural setting. I’ve been writing Star Trek TNG fan fiction for about 20 years and I tend to concentrate on Picard/Crusher.

I enjoy writing, I read voraciously and I like to walk. I have an embarrassing crush on Sir Patrick Stewart. Ha! But having been the recipient of a kiss and a hug from the man...can you blame me?
