Events, fave reads and other stuff

First up, if you’re around Ipswich (Queensland) this Saturday (20th), I’ll be hanging out at Angus & Robertson in Riverlink Shopping Centre from 11am to 12.30pm. Feel free to swing by and say hi. I’ll be chatting and signing and probably buying more books for my ever-growing to-be-read pile.

Speaking of reading, I’ve devoured some amazing novels in the past few months. Coincidentally, my favourites are all YA by brilliant Australian writers (except for John Green, who, of course, is American). Click on the thumbnails to see my thoughts on each on Goodreads.

New/recent releases:

Books others have raved about that I finally read:

In other bits and pieces, I’ve had some lovely readers asked for extra bits and pieces on the site here, which I’ve added in. You’ll find a few more character profiles here now and a few thoughts on other photos on Rafa’s phone, here (in the comment thread).

And Shimmer is continuing to take shape. 🙂

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.
