In 2012, she set up Awesome Indies Books to showcase quality independent fiction. She has had extensive training in meditation and Buddhist philosophy and lives in Australia with a husband and a cheeky Burmese cat called George. She also has a wonderful adult daughter.

“When I’m self-editing, I search for all those ‘was’es and ‘were’s and see if I can write the sentences better without them. I usually can. This one tip made a huge difference to the quality of my prose.”
Tahlia Newland, The Elements of Active Prose

“Ignore this advice and some people will discard your work as amateurish. You’ll never know because they won’t tell you; they’re too busy editing books, or teaching their creative writing students or reading better quality books.”
Tahlia Newland, The Elements of Active Prose
