Extremely good and incredibly original

Last night I finished Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer. Still can’t get it out of my head. I may have cried once or twice while reading it… I’ve written a few more thoughts about it on Goodreads:



  1. Yes. This should never ever have been made into a movie. It was meant to savor as only a book can be savored.

      Yeah, I think I’m going to stay away from it…

About Me

I’m the author of the Rephaim series. The Undercurrent, a stand-alone speculative thriller set in near-future Australia, will be released by Text Publishing in August 2017.

For my day job, I’m a writer-journalist-professional communicator, where my writing involves a lot less profanity.

I grew up in regional South Australia and now live in Brisbane with my husband.

If you’re interested in how I came to land a publishing deal, you can read the short version in this post from August 2011. There’s a longer version (in a guest post) here.
