Charlotte Nash was born in England and grew up in the sunny Redland Shire of Brisbane. Obsessed with horses and riding, she began stealing her mother's Jilly Cooper novels at the age of thirteen, and has been enthusiastic for romance ever since. Always a little unconventional, she took a meandering path to writing through careers in engineering and medicine, including stints building rockets and as an industrial accident investigator. Now she writes both romantic novels and science fiction and fantasy (mostly short stories). She moonlights as a creative writing PhD student, studying how narratives engage the brain. She lives in a cosy Brisbane cottage with her husband and son, and a small flock of lovable chooks.

The prophetic unicorn

Today, in the weekly grocery shop, I noticed another incursion of the unicorn into a familiar brand. Kellogg's LCMs now have unicorn line, joining the Coles brand unicorn icecream cones we've been scoffing in this house of late (though I prefer the mermaid flavour). Last year, unicorn hair colour was everywhere. Then there was unicorn toast. And frappacinos. Blow up pool toys (our neighbours ha...

Cycle of Hope by TRICIA DOWNING

Tricia Downing is clearly an inspirational athlete, and the sports-focus of the memoir makes sense in that way. Her tenacity is palpable, but so is a lot of frustration and unresolved anger. That, too, is understandable. The writing keeps much of the ...more

Neal Stephenson is always a reading experience, and for an author who writes epics, this one is EPIC. Beginning with the destruction of the moon and ending more than 5000 years later, the scope of vision in this book is immense, and it answers in the ...more

Dragon Teeth by Michael Crichton

I love Crichton's work, including his historical novels, like The Great Train Robbery and Eaters of the Dead. This book, however, like the others posthumously published, definitely feels the lack of him being present in the polishing. I can feel his ...more

Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman

Thoughtful, poignant and a page-turner. Eleanor is a character who runs that fine border between unlikable and sympathetic, and the narrative is artfully balanced between tragedy and levity. I had moments of dread wondering where it was going towards ...more

An interesting idea, but the reading experience is confusing, boring, full of filler and forgettable characters. Even allowing for problems in translation (and for experimental fiction), this read to me like an overly ambitious early novel of writer ...more

“Fear is not real. The only place that fear can exist is in our thoughts of the future. It is a product of our imagination, causing us to fear things that do not at present and may not ever exist. That is near insanity. Do not misunderstand me danger is very real but fear is a choice.”
Will Smith
