A heartfelt thank you to all my Wattpad readers of Silver! You helped me believe in this story and you helped me finish it! I enjoyed the experience so much with Wattpad readers, that I wanted to write another YA story for them ... this became Repeat After Me ... These novels are dedicated to all of you ... xxx

About me:
I grew up in the south-east suburbs of Melbourne. My education came mostly from reading Dolly magazine and J.D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye, listening to Pulp's Common People and spending a year spent as an exchange student in Latvia.

These days, I work in the visual arts sector and like exploring Melbourne laneways and galleries for a new discovery that will give me goosebumps.

My teen characters are the girls I wish I was at 16, my adult characters are the women I'm most afraid of becoming.

I was honoured to be invited to share my best writing tip for Wattpad's 2014 Just Write It challenge: https://www.wattpad.com/77373675-just-write-it-guide-day-23-write-your-voice
