Thalia grew up on a farm on the outskirts of Melbourne with a mum who tried to save battery hens by on-selling them as backyard chickens. Her dad worked as an industrial chemist while also growing strawberries, carrots and Christmas trees on the farm. It was not unusual to find plant shoots in the freezer, or the hair dryer missing because it was needed to heat one of her dad’s experiments. Thalia's childhood showed her the magic that can happen when science and nature combine with human creativity.

Hi Isla,
I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed Lifespan of Starlight. Sorry I've taken so long to reply - I didn't see the message straight away.
I'm working on the sequel right now - lots of twists and turns in store. It's called 'Split Infinity' and will be released in May next year.
Thanks for your message and happy reading!

Here's an update about the final instalment of the Lifespan of Starlight trilogy: it's due for release in November 2017, and the working title is Edge of Time.

Figgy is on page 53 of 257 of The Princess Diarist: I knew I was going to be awful with men, partly because of the way my mom had been, with her two divorces and one separation in the pipeline. I possessed that certainty by fifteen or sixteen, and so I needed to prove it to you. Sure, the insight wasn't a comfortable one, but it was mine, and I was still young enough to be considered precocious.
