Co-written story with @EllaNigh (other person in my pic!) on her profile - READ IT!

Yo, I'm Gladys. A grumpy 20-something year old getting through life by cracking one dad joke at a time. (Before anyone can say that fob-me picked an ancient name, I'm bringing sexy back!)

As a kid, I wanted to be a business wizard who'd bring an epic Chinese fast food chain to Australia. Then I wanted to be a rockstar, and then a mechatronics engineer. Somewhere in between, I lost my handle on reality and switched my masters degree from mechatronics to creative writing, publishing & editing. I'm unpredictable and so are my stories.


Q: where are you from?
A: Australia

Q (not really): the opera house is soooo cool!
A: Melbourne > Sydney. We've got better allergies.

Q: why squirrel?
A: because I wanted to be anonymous and my friend had just come up with a perfectly incognito nickname.

Q: can I stalk you on social media?
A: I'm a great stalker myself, so I know how you feel. You can find me on twitter/fb/insta @ gladiusquintus.

Q: can you follow me back/read my book?
A: Sorry but I don't follow back unless I know you well... it's a stress thing. I welcome all chats though! Due to a busy life, please don't ask me to read your story. I appreciate your understanding of my crankiness if you ignore this. Thank you! Also, I swear a lot. If you're offended, I'm gonna take it personally.
