A big thank you for the comments and likes on my post announcing the imminent arrival of my first novel The Wave at Hanging Rock. Having been writing (kind of) in secret for a while it was nice to finally be open about it, and especially nice to hear that people are interested. It makes me feel a lot more relaxed about the whole thing. So thank you all.

Since I was a child I’ve always wanted to be a writer. I love books, I love stories, I basically live with my head in the clouds. But half my life seems to have slipped by and I haven’t been a writer, although it feels like I’ve tried every other job imaginable. A few years ago I finally worked it out. All you have to do to be a writer, is write a bloody book. So here it is.
