ABOUT MY PEN NAME:
Once upon a time, I wrote a joke about someone drunkenly referring to another character as their "vinkun wildflower" (see Far Longer Than Forever and The planting of seeds for more details). It took on its own life, and I was proclaimed by Julia-Caesar to be the Queen of the Vinkun Wildflowers.
Jemma Rix (the longest and last Australian Elphaba).
Delta Goodrem (Australian singer/songwriter. She's just beautiful, and her songs are incredible).
ABOUT MY WRITING:
I don't post any fics on this site until I've finished them (or almost finished them), and I update every second day (unless something comes up), so I don't keep you all waiting.
ABOUT WICKED AND I:
I saw it the first time on 2 June 2010 and have never looked back. I've read the book (Don't love it, but I may use bits of it in my stories in terms of world building); but the musical is such a huge part of me.
I'm very proud of the fact I was known through uni as "Wicked Girl" and have been known as "Miss Wicked" and "Wick-dawg" by students across my teaching career.

I am open to constructive criticism, but if you don’t like the story- simply don’t read it, it’s that easy.
