About this author

J.B. Thomas was born in Perth in 1971. Adopted at four weeks of age, she grew up in a beachside suburb with three brothers.

She is a fan of Russian literature, and her favourite books are Anna Karenina and Crime and Punishment.

I enjoyed this book, which is part of a class set in the English storeroom. I do feel that it is more suited to adult readers, and not young adults. Over ten years of high school English teaching, I've learned that most kids need a faster pace and mo...more

message 2: by J.B.

J.B. Thomas Had a lovely interview today with The West Australian. For those who don't live in Perth, WA (nearly everyone of my friends!) that is the state's daily newspaper. Very exciting. George is becoming more and more famous everyday. (The Great Dane on my author pic.) Is anyone out there a Great Dane fan? Or a fan of dogs in general?
