I grew up in Darwin and the far north coast of NSW, but now I live in Bondi Beach, Sydney. I write YA novels, my first is called Yellow and right now it’s shortlisted for the CBCA Book of the Year Awards. My second, The Build-Up Season, has just been released. I’m really lucky to have them both published by Penguin Random House. Sometimes I write scripts for TV shows, but mostly I help put the ABC TV news to air. I’ve had my short stories published in The Sydney Morning Herald, the UTS Writers’ Anthology ‘I Can See My House from Here’, and in the Review of Australian Fiction, and I’ve had a short story produced and aired on ABC radio. When I’m not working for the man I’m soaking in some melanomas at the beach or pretending I’m a downward dog at yoga (while looking nothing like a dog, or a wheel, or a chair while doing those poses, I just look like an awkwardly bent person). I’m a wanderer and wonderer, a lover of dad jokes and a sucker for smiles.
