Chatting With Sherri welcomes award winning author A.J. Ponder!
The Sir Julius Vogel and NZSA award winning author A.J. Ponder for short story Frankie and the Netball Clone and for an anthology I coordinated of stories based in Te Papa Lost in the Museum. She has a head full of monsters, and recklessly spills them out onto the written page. Beware dragons, dreadbeasts, taniwha, and small children—all are equally dangerous, and capable of treading on your heart – or tearing it, still beating, from your chest.
She started writing with Peter Friend (multi award winner and Asimov's contributor) We had quite a few plays and stories published in Australia and New Zealand. She's written everything from mad scientists, to space explorers, to high fantasy with spoof elements - which is what Quest is. She was the unofficial editor of Lost in the Museum and one of the three editors in Twisty Christmas Tales.
