Why do you write? 
I write because it's fun (sometimes).

How would you describe your work?
I mostly write non-fiction and it can either be very tongue-in-cheek and silly or very serious and academic (or somewhere in between) depending on my audience. Either way, I hope that whatever I write is interesting in some way.

What's your party trick?
I can hold a handstand for up to 60 seconds, yes. And walk, while in handstand.

What are you looking forward to in 2015?
I am looking forward to handing in my Honours' thesis, getting more experience in writing and editing and, in general, having an all-round more mature life. Perhaps the ability to talk politely to my mother and to hand in essays on time.
