Bio: I am an aspiring writer living in Melbourne, Australia, and one of our culture's last 'finishing school girls', pearls, pony, cashmere and totally out of touch with the real world. An apparently superfluous education in social dancing, embroidery, baking, drama, horse riding, sewing, music theory, deportment and etiquette has, in fact, proven to be surprisingly useful in the modern world of back alley stabbings, eco terrorism and teenagers shaking their wobbly bits for cash. P.S. Madelyn Winter is the name under which the author publishes erotica, attends salacious gatherings, removes clothing and consorts with shady men in fedoras (more likely latex pants, but a girl can dream). In the hope that the author's legal name can sparkle cleanly on grant applications!
