As a writer, I lead an extremely exciting life. When I'm not base jumping, playing my guitar and singing for a sold-out crowd, or having tea with the queen... Okay, all of these things are lies.

The truth is, I live on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia, with my husband and son and you'll most likely find me with my laptop on my lap and a coffee in my hand.

Obsessed with YA fiction, I'm still a teenager at heart and live all of my exciting experiences through reading and writing.

Over the last few months, I’ve been contacted by people offering editing services. As someone who has been screwed over a lot in the past, I’m wary. But I realised today that there are so many new authors out there, and any of them could fall for the bullshit lines these people are trying to sell me.

You know that old saying, those who can’t do, teach? What does an author do when their books ar...

Michelle Bryan is by far my most favourite dystopian/pot apocalyptic author, and this series was one of the first indie books I read.

So it comes to a bittersweet end for me as this series is over. There will be no more Tara, no more jax, and no more

I'm not a huge fan of fantasy, but I received an arc, and I'm glad I gave it a chance because it was amazing. I'm totally in love with Davi and the strong female characters. I recommend this for anyone, even people who don't usually read fantasy.

“And why was I not told of this almost event that might have happened, when it happened, but didn’t?"

"Did you even understand what you just said?”
Kayla Howarth, The Institute

“A soul mate is someone you spend your entire life knowing. You grow with them, you become a part of who they are and vice versa until there is a point where you don’t know where they end and you begin. Looking”
Kayla Howarth, Resistance

“You have to go through the hard times now, so you know how to handle them in the future. Life isn’t always sunshine and rainbows. If it was, you would have a breakdown every time you broke a nail. You’re better than that, and I can see you’re growing into a woman that your mother would be proud of. This is how strong people are made, Allira.”    ”
Kayla Howarth, The Institute
