Maggie Veness realized a while back that fiction was easier to live with than fact. People do drugs, lie, die, go bonkers, and make mistakes. Look no further than your own family. All that craziness and angst needs an escape-route. Her stories get to the mad heart of things, which isn’t always comfortable. From flash to novella length—the vast majority print-published—Maggie’s work has appeared in many countries in a range of eclectic literary journals and anthologies. She lives in a small seaside town in northern NSW, Australia. Maggie won 2nd prize in the Bare Fiction Prize for Flash Fiction 2015.
