"I'm a writer, reader and weirdo from Melbourne, Australia." Is how Marlee Jane Ward describes herself on her website and she is all of those things in the most delightful way BUT Marlee isn't just any ordinary writer...as Kel fast discovers in this interview. Marlee's preferred literary world is Speculative Fiction, she is obsessed with doomsday scenarios and post apocalyptic worlds and her first 2 books "Welcome to Orphancorp" and "Psynode" were both nominated for an Aerealis Award, they were that good. It's clear that Marlee Jane Ward is an exciting new voice on the literary scene and we aren't the only ones who think so! CONTENT WARNING: Marlee is open and candid about her mental health in this interview. It may trigger some people.
