About Sarah Billington

Sarah Billington is an Australian writer and editor who likes to write stories with love, laughs, suspense and zombies. Sometimes all in the same story. Her favouritest thing to write about are those horrendously awkward moments that come with being a teenager. Or a human being. Sarah was extremely accident-prone and klutzy as a kid and teen, so her cup runneth over with experiences of horrendously awkward moments to draw from in her writing. Thankfully, she has grown out of her klutziness. Mostly. She is, however, still an embarrassment.

She loves a variety of random things, which include Swing Dancing, Ice Hockey, Roller Derby and is a bit obsessive about paranormal investigation shows and channel E!.

Review by: Monique Mcintosh on May 26, 2011 :
Life was easier when boys where stupid. Is a very quick read, but I enjoyed it. It was kind of like a “Now you see it, now you don’t” type of thing, I love how familiar the story was, and to be honest, how Australian it was. Only an Australian author, knows when to use the word “Bloke.” Apart from the Australiana I felt from the short story I do think it is a story a lot of people can relate too, The only problem I had? Just as I started getting into the story and drifting off into Jess’ world it ended! I was bummed.
