About Me
The eldest of three siblings, Ozlem grew up between two countries British by birth ethnic origin Turkish, current habitat London. Her creative passion started with a pencil followed onto a paintbrush, found a pen then utilised a camera. Ozlem studied BA (Hons) Fine Art with Related Arts at University of Chichester; she exhibited her artworks as part of her degree show in June 2000. She has worked in various fields in the private, public and charity sectors but has found her calling as a writer.

Poet from an early age and blogger since March 2011, she strives to make her mark; Ozlem has embarked on her writing career February 2011, she is the author of several Poems, Articles, Guest Posts, Flash Fictions & Short Stories. Ozlem is currently writing her first novel, examples of her work can be found on her blog (yikici).
What are you working on at the moment?
I am working on two projects, one's a YA Short Story (Moon of Change) the second is my first YA novel (Becoming - Mystical Realisations); both titles are subject to change.

Moon of Change is a fantasy story with elements of prose woven into it. I explore the realm of Merlin; but with new characters and twists involving dragons. Moon of Change actually stemmed out from a Flash Fiction I wrote last year.

Becoming - Mystical Realisations is a fantasy novel with elements of Romance, Horror and some Paranormal traits. The story literally jumped out at me after I saw three dreams (all different -yet part of a collective to make it whole). It's a story of legends -a legend of numbers and how the one will save humanity and all beings with one light. A story about Worlds colliding, innocence being led astray, awakenings of the soul and a journey into light.

You're definitely not the first and I can almost guarantee that you won't be the last to ask questions and get confuzzled by Ning... I'd never even heard of it before I joined SCBWI!  Take your time and take notes  :-)
