What's happening in October

I’ve been busy in recent weeks with editing Haze and working on projects for my day job, but I thought I should pop my head up and write a quick post about what I’ll be up to in October.

First up, I’m excited to be the October online resident writer for Inside A Dog, the State Library of Victoria’s online hub for teen readers. From 1 October, you can check out my posts here. I’ll be chatting about writing, reading and other booky stuff, with at least three posts a week during the month. Pop over and join the conversation!

I’ve also got a couple of in-store appearances, thanks to the lovely Stephanie and Kevin at Angus & Robertson Victoria Point and Ipswich. I’ll be hanging out for a few hours, chatting about books in general (and, of course, the Rephaim series if the topic comes up 🙂 ).

Saturday 6 October, 10am

Angus & Robertson Ipswich
Saturday 13 October 10.30am

As mentioned above, I’m well advanced on early edits for Haze and am really happy with how the story is shaping up. I’ll provide some teasers in coming months.

My reading pace has dropped off lately due to workload, but I’ve still managed to finish some amazing novels in the past few months. Click on the thumbnails below for my thoughts on each on Goodreads.


  1. I’ve read all but Friday Brown and Fire in the Sea there. Loved the other three! I’ve heard nothing but good things about Friday Brown so I hope I can read it soon. 🙂

      Hi Sam – Friday Brown is still the best book I’ve read this year (one of my all-time favourites now – I still can’t stop thinking about). And Finnikin…just mind blowing. 🙂

About Me

I’m the author of the Rephaim series and The Undercurrent.

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 the Scenic Rim with my husband and a retired greyhound.

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.
