I've been writing ever since I can remember, thanks to my grandmother who was a schoolteacher. When I was thirteen, I was so frustrated because I couldn't find exactly the type of book I wanted to read that I decided to start writing it myself. Never quite looked back since then. One writing degree and several bottom-drawer novels later, this is me living in Sydney, listening constantly to music, watching classic films and eyeing off the next story to tell.

Just put this up, Head, a very short modern take on a very old tale.


The muse does strike without warning.
