Michaela Daphne


I'm an Aussie girl that's been dreaming up tales for as long as I can remember, staying up until the wee hours of the morning with pictures running through my mind.

Purlieu is my first book and is inspired by personal experiences of my own life.

I live in Brisbane, Australia with my husband.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I first realised I was story writing in primary school when I was being bullied. I used it as a distraction and realised how much I enjoyed creating worlds where anything can happen, rather than the lack of control I was experiencing around me at school.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Queensland, Australia, in a humble little town halfway between the Gold Coast and Brisbane city.
