My name is Ziggy, and I’m a writer in Vancouver, BC. I write mostly stuff that falls under the Young Adult umbrella, often stuff with a fantasy feel.
When I’m not writing, I can often be found in some dark theatre. I work as a stage manager for a few local community theatre companies.
I’m queer, and I work as an educator for Qmunity who goes into schools all over the Greater Vancouver area and talks about queer history, sexism and homophobia, and general antioppression workshops as well. I also have ADHD and a permanent brain injury. So it should come to no surprise that I am a big supporter of such calls for diversity like #ownvoices and #WeNeedDiverseBooks. Writing without diversity is as disingenuous as it is boring, in my opinion.
My first published work is Eggshells, a short story that will be appearing in Meerkat Press’s Behind The Mask anthology, which is out May 16, 2017.
