After studying languages and ancient history at university, I spent several years teaching overseas-trained doctors how to pronounce rude words and teenagers how to mummify each other, whilst cultivating a taste for manga and video games in my spare time.
Unsurprisingly, my early attempts at writing serious adult fiction failed.
Fortunately, I proved to be much better at writing slightly zany Young Adult fiction. I’ve had two YA novels, Mishaps and Dangerously Placed, published by Random House Australia and I’m currently hard at work on the next one (assuming that ‘hard at work’ is synonymous with ‘researching glamorous locations on the internet’).
