Joseph Robert and I are jointly published in Inane Pure Slush Volume 14 today. This is our third joint publication since our reversible poetry chapbook, Realms of Man/ Metamorphosis of Woman was published in 2012 by Meandi Books and more of our poetry appeared in Mudjob Magazine in 2013 (Joseph Robert here and Leilanie Stewart here). This time, however, our joint publication is fiction not poetry.
Joseph Robert’s story, ‘This Really Happened’ tells the sorry tale of an unfortunate dog, Poochie and his self-centred owner. My story, ‘Fear of the Mould’ is a second person narrative on trying to escape destructive thoughts. E-versions of the anthology should be following soon – more when this happens.
About Leilanie Stewart
Leilanie Stewart is an author and poet from Belfast, Northern Ireland. She has written four novels, including award-winning ghost horror, The Blue Man, as well as three poetry collections. Her writing confronts the nature of self; her novels feature main characters on a dark psychological journey who have a crisis of identity and create a new sense of being. She began writing for publication while working as an English teacher in Japan, a career pathway that has influenced themes in her writing. Her former career as an Archaeologist has also inspired her writing and she has incorporated elements of archaeology and mythology into both her fiction and poetry.
In addition to promoting her own work, Leilanie runs Bindweed Magazine, a creative writing literary journal with her writer husband, Joseph Robert. Aside from publishing pursuits, Leilanie enjoys spending time with her husband and their lively literary lad, a voracious reader of sea monster books.
