A few weeks back I tweeted a tweet about our refrigerator and that tweet went gangbusters. 43,000 likes later – this is the story of that tweet.
I’m jolly well delighted to be included in this year’s Going Down Swinging (which, by-the-by, is GORGEOUS to behold). My story ‘The Great Pretender’ was inspired by a research tangent I spiralled out on during research for The Book of Ordinary People. Rather than doing what I had planned to do, I spent a delightful day in the State Library of Victoria reading about the various pretenders to abolished or usurped thrones across the globe. It was something I’d never considered and was fascinated by: what would life be like for these would-be royals and what if one of them ended up in suburban Australia? Pretenders to the throne – they’re just like us!

Every so often a review comes along that makes you collapse onto the desk and happy cry. This is that review.
Nothing puffs out the chest like a nice review from an author you admire! (Even her reviews are exquisitely written…)
Thank you to Sam Still Reading for this lovely review of The Book of Ordinary People!
A lovely review from Jessica Incoll over at Glam Adelaide.
