Gilly Goldsworthy


After a lifetime of wanting to, Gilly put aside her fears and picked up the pen seven years ago. She studied creative writing with both the Open University and the Open College of the Arts, but believes that the only real way to learn to write, is to write. So she writes short stories, and has a real passion for travel writing. She has been working on her first novel, a contemporary version of an African myth, for quite some time. Gilly loves observing people and places, rarely missing a detail, either with her eyes or her camera. She blogs at Lucid Gypsy, where she regularly uses her own photos to inspire her poetry, including the Japanese short forms of haiku and tanka.

The expensive German kitchen drawer opened smoothly to yield a vegetable knife. She tested it on her fingertip: she wanted to, her best friend did it, but she but was sickened by the rapid gush of red . . .
