Frequently Asked Questions:

How long have you been writing?

I wrote my first complete story when I was four. I decided I wanted a career as a writer when I was thirteen and decided to write 1000 words a day, every day, from then on. That’s 365, 000 word a year, over 14 years, which equates to about 5, 110, 000 unpublished words of crap hidden away on harddrives and CDs around my house.


What do you read?

Crime thrillers, fantasy, YA, steampunk, oodles of horror short stories. My favourite authors are CS Pacat, Joe Abercrombie, China Mieville, Karin Slaughter and Scott Westerfeld.


How can I contact you?

My email is listed at the bottom of the page! You have to re-construct it to email me. Think of it as an IQ test.


I have a great book idea! Could you write it?

Sure. My ghostwriting rates are 50c a word, flat fee. Not based on future sales.
Oh, you wanted me to do all the work and take equal risk? No, I can't do that.


Your life must be so romantic!

The most romantic thing about my life is that one of my friends sometimes calls me 'Boobhat' because I am particularly well endowed. Also, sometimes men walk into lamp posts and signs while staring at my chest. It's not really romantic, but it's pretty funny.


You must be a crazy, perverted sex fiend!

Ha. I wish.


Is Zaide Bishop your real name?

Nope. It's not that I'm ashamed of writing erotica, but I'd also like to write young adult under my other pen name and publishers frown on that kind of thing. I also try and keep this pen name away from family members.


When is your next book coming out?

First I have to write it, then I have to edit it, then my editor and I have to edit it five or six times, then it has to be formatted and cover art has to be created, then there's some magic and ritual sacrifice. I try and make the information on the book's page as factual as I can. Whatever dates I have been told are listed there.


I have formed opinions of you and your sexuality based on your books.

Of course. I base all my books on my own experiences. Just like J.K Rowling based Harry Potter on her own years at Hogwarts and Karin Slaughter draws on her extensive knowledge gained in the years she spent murdering victims all across America.
