Stephanie Zia is a writer, editor and publisher at blackbird-digitalbooks.com, London. "The Long Pig" was inspired by her travels through Melanesia and Micronesia on BBC filming trips; specifically the Yap islanders' unique stone money system and a visit to a remote missionary outpost in Papua New Guinea. "The Long Pig" is published as part of her short story collection The Doughnut Dome & Other Stories. Her latest title is a boomer lit novel, The Born Again Virgin, about a rock chick widow of 50 torn between aging gracefully and disgracefully. Both available through Amazon.
