Welcome to the web home of writer, Ginny Gilroy
In January I'll be attending the Key West Literary Seminar. This year’s theme is, Yet Another World: Literature of the Future. I'm really looking forward to learning from some of the best Science Fiction writers at work today, Margaret Atwood, Joyce Carol Oates and William Gibson. It's a bonus that the seminar is being held in one of my all time favorite places, Key West. I’ll be tweeting from there. If you’re interested you can follow me @ginnygilroy.
For pictures from the conference check the A/V room in early February.
What else is on the site?
There are a few facts and figures about me in the sidebar on the left.
In the short stories section you’ll find not only a list of the short stories but also short introductions to each, a la Harlan Ellison. I always found his introductions, especially those in Strange Wine anthology, fascinating. I hope these introductions give you a little insight into how and why the stories got written.
My debut novel, Dellwood, has it’s own section.
Pics from the Baltimore Book Fest have been been posted. Jay Ortiz of Jay Ortiz Photography did the photos for the book party, where a good time was had by all. The photos are available in the A/V room.
As in introvert I’m not a particularly social person, but you can follow me on Twitter @ginnygilroy.com. I try to post a handful of times a week, mostly about where I eat. I'm a foodie at heart.
