Thank you for being my guest interview on my blog.  It was a delight for me to meet you at Somerset Literary Festival and to share your passion for writing.

Q 1 When did you start writing?

I studied Professional Writing and Editing at RMIT in 2001, when I was about twenty-nine. I loved the subjects Literary Non-fiction and Writing for Young Adults. I was able to have some of the articles and short stories that I wrote in class published – in newspapers and magazines. While I was writing smaller pieces I finished my novel and in 2003, Pan Macmillan published The Life and Times of Gracie Faltrain. I think the journey after publication was harder for me than the journey post publication. After I was published I had to work hard to get better – I’m still working hard at this. And it took me a while to find my style. I think I’m getting close to that in Graffiti Moon. That book has sold overseas, as has A Little Wanting Song (Chasing Charlie Duskin).
