Uni of Qld Alumni This is Your Life Kind of Thing

Actually, that whole heading is a massive exaggeration … but I am Uni of Qld Alumni, and I did do an interview with the irrepressible Katie Rowney for their online blog. It’s about the time I had there (both at uni and at college) and how I went from using my degree to writing books (which isn’t really using my degree, but they

Summer Skin on OzYAY! on ABC Local with Rhianna Patrick

Okay, so that’s the hardest post title I have ever written. But, deconstructed, it means that this Sunday 5th June, on the OzYAY! segment of Rhianna Patrick’s ABC LOCAL program, Summer Skin is being discussed, along with Jaclyn Moriarty’s A Tangle of Gold (7pm to 8pm AEST). Jaci and I will be interviewed about our books during the segment, and they will be discussed

View this post on Instagram I'm in the Daily Telegraph today. Thanks heaps to Chris Hawken (@kelly_hawken) for the heads up. And thanks heaps to my surf mates who acted interested and didn't make snoring noises when I told them. Fiona Purdon, the journo, was amazing – she reads a lot of YA and knows her stuff. She's also the consummate professional because
