I've funded my unfortunate writing habit through medical research on various parts of the African continent and drinking a lot of coffee. Earlier phases of my life have included teaching unfortunate children and experimenting on unfortunate fish. In between a steady drizzle of rejections, I've seen a few stories in venues including 'Apex', 'Interzone' and the 'Year's Best Science Fiction' for 2014, and won the 2014 James White Award. My website is at http://cockburndj.wordpress.com/ and I have occasionally been caught twittering as @DJ_Cockburn.
