Authors for Japan

The writer Keris Stainton has created an auction of over 150 literary lots to raise money for Japan. There are a number of exciting lots to bid for: signed copies of novels, your name (or your pet) as a character in an upcoming novel, coffee and cake with a literary agent turned author, mentorships and manuscript critiques. I have offered two lifetime memberships to Diving Deeper. They are listed at number 6. Bidding closes on March 20th, so please go and support the project.

About Sandra Jensen

I am a writer. I was born in Johannesburg, South Africa and have lived in several countries. Currently I'm based in the UK and the south west of Ireland. I live with my partner, David Crean and my foundling cat, Rónán. I have over 40 short story and flash fiction publications, including in: World Literature Today, The Irish Times, Descant, AGNI, The Fiddlehead and others. My work has received a number of awards including the 2012 bosque Fiction Competition and the 2011 J.G. Farrell award for best novel-in-progress, adjudicated by Gillian Slovo. I have been awarded Professional Writer’s Grants from the Canada Council for the Arts, the Arts Council of Ireland and Arts Council England. The novel I am working on, Ten Virtuous Acts, is a literary adventure set in Sri Lanka during the civil war. I administer the In Memory of Vučko and AWABosnia websites, raising awareness and funds to stop animal suffering in Sarajevo and Bosnia-Herzegovina.
