‘I’m one of those writers who can’t not write, and it doesn’t matter to me whether my books are successful. I’m a morning person and I spring from my bed, enlivened by my passion for writing; I’m also a chronic insomniac, and must be one of the few who hallucinates on herbal sleeping pills (not kidding)- and I see words written all over my bedroom walls! Wish I could read what they said – boo to my hallucinations!’
Her next book, Notes from the North, is unlike Long Shadows (Book 1) of her trilogy, it’s set in a small town in middle of nowhere Australia. Our character Hunter has much to learn about perspective, change and time, and self-love. It’s not arty farty chick lit but a rolling story (a novella, less than 40,000 words) about how we’re all mice on a wheel, but each day can look different and new if we look at things with new eyes. There are some pretty cool characters in there too!
