If you know much about my writing you're probably aware that most of my published work has been contemporary YA, very realistic stuff similar to things that might well have happened to you or someone you know. I've also written two sci-fi eco-thrillers, a novel about a twenty-year-old who goes into a state of collapse after the love-of-her-life boyfriend dies, and a book about a ghost girl teth...

“All people dream, but not equally.
Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their mind, wake in the
morning to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous

D.H. Lawrence

“If you're feeling bad for any reason, going to the mall always makes you feel worse. It's so glarey and noisy. The stores are full of things you think you might like until you get close and see how stupid they are.”
Betty Miles

“I hate that word boobs. I wish people wouldn't say it, especially girls. It's like calling your own body stupid.”
Betty Miles, The Trouble with Thirteen

“It seemed strange that someone as old as Aunt Sylvia would talk about growing up. In a way I'm not sure i like the idea that you always keep on doing it. It seems sort of tiring. And then, people don't automatically do it right.”
Betty Miles, The Trouble with Thirteen

“The only true currency in this bankrupt world is what you share with someone else when you're uncool.”

Amber I'm honoured to get to be your friend on Goodreads! I really loved The Lighter Side of Life and Death, you're an amazing author with a true gift, who stands out in the often monotonous teen fiction section. :) I look forward to reading more of your books when I get the time!
