About me


Here are three articles about different aspects of my writing life.

‘So Long and Thanks for all the Fish: a Retrospective Look at my Writing Life’ is an overview of my development as a writer, based on a range of talks I’ve given and articles I’ve written over the years, revised and remixed for this website.

‘I was a Teenage Romance Writer’, published in Sex in Public: Australian Sexual Cultures, edited by Jill Julius Matthews, does what it says in the title.

‘Gender Construction, Teenagers, Sexual Identity and a Girl Called Blake’, a paper given at the English Teachers Association conference in 1999, talks about how I came to write the Blake mystery series.
