Hello and Welcome

Secret Society of Words Publications

About Cat Sheely and the SSOW

My paradise is the South Coast of New South Wales, Australia where I live with my husband and now only one delightful, but aging, rough-coated Jack Russell/Irish Terrier cross. A graduate of several universities including Canberra, New England and Monash, and following multiple and varied careers from Navy Medic to IT Project Director, I have settled down to being a full-time writer and part-time IT geek. My published short stories include fantasy and science fiction although I am always inexplicably drawn into the sinister murk of disturbed minds.  When it all becomes too much, I take the kayak out to sea or swear through a game of golf to re-establish equilibrium.

I am a proud founding member, along with Louise Falcioni, of the Secret Society of Words, the evening group of the Eurobodalla Branch of the Fellowship of Australian Writers. We have a group of delightfully creative minds and I have had the pleasure to edit and write for the novella’s we have published showcase just that.
