I am a prose writer living in Brighton with my husband and young daughter. I’ve written a novel called A Fat Gold Watch which is women’s fiction with a literary tone, and was shortlisted by you for the Lightship First Chapter Award, longlisted for the Mslexia Novel Competition and shortlisted for the Cinnamon Novel Award.
I write because I want to tell stories and have been writing since I was six years old. I have an MA in Creative Writing from The University of Sussex and my short stories have been published in literary magazines, including Ambit, Random Acts of Writing, SmokeLong Quarterly, Tall Tales and Modern Fables and London Art. I perform at short stories nights in Brighton. I blog about my writing on my web page: natasciadsakamoto.webs.com. My passion in my writing is to write stories for women about women which bridge the gap between literary and commercial fiction.
