Knack Writer Profile: Alix Foley

Alix is an avid reader, a recreational eater, and an avid homebody. Her aspirations are many and varied but include completing a one-armed pull-up, and developing a sophisticated palate when it comes to wine. She has lived in Canberra a long time and is too poor to leave, which is fine, because she likes Canberra anyway.


Why do you write?
I love stories too much not to create my own.

How would you describe your work?
Wistful, weird, poorly plotted?? (I'm trying to work on that last one.)

What's your party trick?
I can light a lighter using my toes; I can also undulate my stomach in an upsetting fashion.

What are you looking forward to in 2015?
As a graduate: writing because I want to, not because I need to.
