Mullet-a-rama




The last time I won a prize for creative writing the year was 1992.
Paul Keating was PM, the first Big Day Out was held at the Sydney showgrounds, headlined by Nirvana, Strictly Ballroom was released and Tim Winton's Cloudstreet won the Miles Franklin. Miley's dad Billy was making waves in the music industry with his Achy Breaky Heart and his unstoppable mullet. The prize I picked... Read more of this blog post »

"Wouldn't normally read a book about anything sporty but I really enjoyed this book. As an eating psychology specialist, it was interesting reading about Cristian's food and weight issues, particularly in relationship to sport. Great work Pip!"

“As we walk across the oval afterwards - the Goth, the beauty queen and the fat country girl - I can feel the whole school turning our way and raising a collective eyebrow. If we were a band we would be called The Outcasts.”
Pip Harry, I'll Tell You Mine

“Here’s the thing. I’ve been kicked out of home. After the last thing I did
I ran out of chances. Tipped all my parents’ patience out on the floor
like the last bit of milk in the container. They just lost it. Fair enough,
I suppose. I did do something pretty bad. So bad I can’t even say it out
loud. Neither can Mum. We both just: Don’t. Talk. About. It.”
