It's a perfect day for a funeral... Mine!
Phoebe Wilby currently lives in the UK with her husband and two of her five children. She has been writing since childhood, including horror stories, humour, and poetry, usually about life as she saw it then.
While studying for her Bachelor of Journalism at Queensland University of Technology, Phoebe also worked temporarily as editor of Kids In Brisbane, a newspaper-style magazine aimed at parents of under 12s in Brisbane and the surrounding regions. In 2002, also while still studying, she won the Literary Achievement Award for Excellence in Fiction from the Golden Key International Honour Society, of which she is a lifetime member, for her fictionalised treatment of the September 11, 2001 tragedy in New York.
Her chaotic lifestyle now lends itself to the writing of short stories and poetry and she continues to do this sporadically, interspersed with a full time job, admin duties for a stable of psychiatrists, arranging music for children’s songs written by a friend, voluntary work for her Church and of course, family commitments.
She claims she doesn’t have the attention span to write a novel. However, she is currently working on a trilogy – and rather than finish them one at a time, is working on all three stories at once!
