Ophelia is based in Victoria, Australia. She writes speculative fiction (fantasy and supernatural themes). She works as a freelance editor and researcher and also spends her time drawing and riding horses.
Ophelia’s love of writing and story-telling has encouraged her to study in a range of areas. In 2007 Ophelia completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Editing and Communications. In 2004 she completed her Masters by Research on the topic of Violence and Imperium in Livy’s First Pentad. Later that year, she received a mentorship for Young and Emerging Authors from the Australian Society of Authors (Australia Council funded) and was lucky enough to work with the wonderful story-teller, Sophie Masson.
