Rosalind Smith-Nazilli is a writer with the concentration span of a goldfish - Really!
Author of Consequential Moments, a collection of twenty four flashes of fiction. (Withdrawn from sale and having a facelift)
She has collections and flash fiction scattered around cyberspace and is always writing more.
Originally from the UK, she now lives by the sea in Turkey with her husband and this is probably what causes her lack of concentration. She can hear the waves lapping at all times, and has a tendency to leap into a bikini at any given moment - not a pretty sight.
She has been a writer for a great many years but has only recently decided to start publishing collections of her flash fiction.
Being able to bash out 100 - 500 words for a flash has never been a huge challenge for her but at some point it is her intention to move on to something a little longer - somewhere in the region of 30k words, anything more and she will lose the plot for sure.
As a flash fiction writer she has encountered quite a lot of negativity about her style and has had aspersions regarding her grammar cast at her. This goes over her head because she tells her stories in the way that they come to her.
Punctuation was never her strongest point so that's why someone else has control over that!
Retired from nursing she spends her days writing, walking, swimming and knitting.
Hi Rosalind, would you consider letting Crime City Central air a piece or two of your flash fiction? We usually ask for 3000 - 10,000 words, but a short piece like yours would be a great change of pace just to mix things up a bit.
