About this author

I like to tell stories. Mostly with hot guys and happily ever afters. They gotta work for it though. No free lunches on my watch.

I'm aiming for 80000 words, and I'm at about 25000. I hope to have the first draft finished in about a month, and then I'll pass it along to some beta readers for feedback.

So hopefully that will put it on track for a release in the first half of 2015, if I can actually put a burst of speed on and get the thing written!

But it's so much fun writing Brady again. A slightly grown up Brady, but still hanging onto all that bad attitude. :) (less)

We don't have assigned summer reading lists here. But if I was a high school teacher -- and everyone should be thankful I'm not -- here's what I'd get the kids to read.

1. Nineteen Eighty-Four. Because it may be the greatest novel ever written. And bonus points would be awarded to the kids who pointed out the irony of being forced to read it.

2. Jasper Jones. One of my favourite Aussie YA books.

3. Deadly, Unna? Another great Aussie YA book. It has a lot of football in it, so boys can bring themselves to read it. But then it sneakily puts other things in behind the football, forcing boys to think about Issues.

4. All Quiet on the Western Front. One of the most brilliant novels of war ever written. Both banal and terrifying, and heartbreaking.

5. Stardust by Neil Gaiman. So that after reading All Quiet on the Western Front they remember how to smile again.

I said I'd make a terrible teacher, right? (less)

“I'm a supporter of gay rights. And not a closet supporter either. From the time I was a kid, I have never been able to understand attacks upon the gay community. There are so many qualities that make up a human being... by the time I get through with all the things that I really admire about people, what they do with their private parts is probably so low on the list that it is irrelevant.”

I hear you! I feel terrible for those couples whose marriages are now "illegal". Even if they knew this was going to happen, it must be heartbreaking.

I really just don't understand it. Heaps of people marry in courthouses every day. Marriage is NOT a purely religious institution, therefore purely religious definitions shouldn't apply.

It's very disheartening, especially given that surveys show that most people support marriage equality.

Pjm12 Lisa, did you see the federal court has overturned the ACT's same-sex marriage law? Gosh, that sucks! More so for me because it turns out people were already expecting it to happen.

And what about all those people who really believed they had been married (for all of four days)?

Pah! I am disgusted right now. It shouldn't feel bad to be Australian. But lately, sometimes I do.
