My name is Ronnie Smart. I am a poet and writer of short fictions,¬†currently training my writing skills at the Hagley Writers’ Institute. My piece, ‘Sometimes, there are bears’ was recently nominated for the Pushcart Prize by Blue Fifth Review.

I was born in Paisley, Scotland, but live in Christchurch, New Zealand. I have also lived in Shanghai and Sydney.

I write what I love. Sometimes this means what I write is contemporary fiction (whatever that is), sometimes I write fantasy, and sometimes I write horror.
