I'm a twenty-something writer living in Melbourne, Australia. I try to keep an open mind about what I write and read, though I'm particularly fond of literary fiction.

Favourite form is the short story.

I enjoy blogging about the writer's journey.

Groucho Marx
“I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.”
Groucho Marx

Albert Schweitzer
“Sometimes our light goes out, but is blown again into instant flame by an encounter with another human being.”
Albert Schweitzer

Truman Capote
“Failure is the condiment that gives success its flavor.”
Truman Capote

Voltaire
“Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.”
Voltaire

John Waters
“You should never read just for "enjoyment." Read to make yourself smarter! Less judgmental. More apt to understand your friends' insane behavior, or better yet, your own. Pick "hard books." Ones you have to concentrate on while reading. And for god's sake, don't let me ever hear you say, "I can't read fiction. I only have time for the truth." Fiction is the truth, fool! Ever hear of "literature"? That means fiction, too, stupid.”
John Waters, Role Models
