I was born and raised in Melbourne, Australia, and have been a giant book nerd for as long as I can remember. I studied Cinema and Anthropology at uni, and then spent a few more years studiously avoiding getting a real job by dabbling in a bunch of graduate stuff, including Writing and Editing. In between I have been a high school teacher, Middle-Eastern tour guide, waitress, community theatre dogs-body, and IT help-desk person (hands down, my most unsuccessful job to date). Now, by day, I am a children's book editor, and I spend most of the rest of my time reading, writing, and watching YouTube. 'Life in Outer Space' is my debut YA novel. It's a young adult romantic comedy that combines some of my many loves - movies, music, karate, old cinemas, Star Wars, and all things geek.

You can find this, and other reviews, on my blog.This book. I’m not even sure where to start. Life in Outer Space isn’t just a young adult novel about the Geeky Guy that falls in love with the Cool Girl. It’s about friendship and navigating high school and growing up and relationships and it’s all p...

You can read this review, and others, on my blog.This might just be the best book I've read this year. It is fun, it is quirky, and it captures all of the thoughts and feelings of leaving school/changing life stages perfectly. All while the world is ending. Set in a quiet little country town in Aust...
