That’s me, listening to the sound of the universe, or maybe it was my intergalactic handler. Honestly, some days it’s hard to keep track.

Nothing stirs author, Belinda Crawford, more than a fast horse, a blazingly fast computer or a really good book.

A Melbourne-based IT graduate, she expanded her passion for reading, and penchant for science fiction and fantasy, to creative writing, and in 2012 had her first short story, ‘Lex Talionis’, published in Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine.

Somewhere between work, karate training and wrestling her keyboard away from a feline named Faust, Belinda wrote Hero, which, in 2013 won one of twelves places in the Australian Society of Authors’ annual mentorship programHero, the first book in The Hero Rebellion, has been picked up by Odyssey Books and published in September this year.

Currently, in between wrangling a horse named Wombat and defending her writing chair from yet more felines (who’ve moved on from her keyboard), Belinda is hard at work on the second book in The Hero Rebellion.
