Well, hey, hello and welcome!

I have an unhealthy obsession with music.

Which is why I've made it my mission to write insanely fun, heartfelt stories about being in bands, going to gigs, listening to mixtapes and playing the guitar extra loud to stadiums of screaming, sweaty fans.

My stories include strong, feisty female MCs, Aussie slang (because it's the best), made up bands I wish really existed so I could go and see them - or, even better, be in them - and decent guys with good senses of humour.

So, if you love music and the way it makes you feel, come, join me on my musical journey ...

_likes touchy-feely with other people's cats
_introverted extrovert / doesn't want attention / wants it a lot
_so gemini I confuse myself
_obsessed with britpop / often veer into 80s, grunge and stoner rock
_tries to play guitar / knows deep down it's never gonna happen
_wishes the words chortle and foppish would come back into fashion
_the mighty boosh, son in law with pauly shore, the young ones, five go mad in dorset, freaks and geeks, the office
_books by amor towles, tim winton, martine murray, david nicholls, gail honeyman, nick hornby

_currently writing GLUE / second story in the SLIDER series / check it out bud-dy
_won $10 in a piano competition once / was the only entrant
_lifetime of studying and working in professional writing, editing, radio copywriting, marketing and communications / know where to cross my i's and dot my t's. oh. hang on.

_MIXTAPE FOR ABBY / heart-breaking 90s aussie drama / music and love / still working it out in my head
_REMEMBER THE FIRST TIME / YA tale about parents and loss and love / includes a sandman panel van / finding yourself / parental relationship stuff
_too many ideas / not enough time
