Publisher info

I’m a mother, author, editor and geek. I live in Canberra, Australia’s bush capital, with my son and two Cairn Terriers. I have a serious coffee addiction and a tattoo of a cat — despite being allergic to cats. I’ve loved to read since primary school, when the library was my refuge, and love many genres — although urban fantasy is my favourite. When I’m not reading or writing, I engage in geekery, from Doctor Who to AD&D. Because who said you need to grow up?

Smashwords Interview

Tell us a little about yourself.
I could cut and paste my author biography here, but that feels a little bit like cheating. So instead, let’s go with this: I’m a long-time geek who has been role-playing since her teens and still has a weekly tabletop game even though she should have grown up years ago. At this stage it doesn’t seem likely, though. I’m a single mother to a bright little boy, having done the dreary marriage/divorce thing. (I don’t recommend it unless you have to.) I have a weakness for good coffee and chocolate, and an abhorrence of bad coffee and chocolate. I’m an introvert who would prefer to spend her time curled up with a book, a pen and paper, or a colouring book, rather than go to a noisy party full of strangers. I’m a public service editor, so I spend a lot of time reading boring reports and have opinions on hyphens (yes please), the Oxford comma (where required) and semicolons (not just for winky emoticons).

I think that about covers it!
Are all your books set in Australia?
The urban fantasies are, including Lucid Dreaming—although part of the third book in my other trilogy also has a handful of scenes set in London and Edinburgh. I’ve thought about setting a book entirely overseas, but there are several reasons I haven’t. One is that I’ve only ever been on one overseas holiday (to Scotland and Spain), and I didn’t think I could fake it. Another is that I’m acutely aware that I not only write in Australian English, but that I don’t always know when a phrase I use is uniquely Australian. If I tried to write a character with an American or British voice, for example, readers would be onto me faster than you can say “g’day, mate”.

Besides, I love Australia and thought there wasn’t enough supernatural fiction set here, so I decided to put my money where my mouth is!
