Author – Editor – Workshop Leader
Award-winning author Tahlia Newland has written seven novels, one book of short stories and a book of writing tips--The Elements of Active Prose. She writes fantasy and magical realism with a touch of romance, and her writing, in its emphasis on the power of the mind, reflects her extensive experience in meditation. Three of her novels have won a BRAG Medallion and an Awesome Indies Seal of Excellence.
She works as an editor for AIA Editing and Publishing, a selective, author-funded publishing company, and lives in an Australian rainforest with a lovely husband and two cheeky Burmese cats. She also makes masks and steampunk accessories, and her wardrobe is full of steampunk clothing which she wears every day because beautiful clothes deserve to be worn.
