IMAGINE ALL THIS actually came out of my 100 WRITERS project, a support group for fiction writers who want to publish their own stories. Find out more about us here.


After my story writing workshop at the All In! Young Writers Festival 2016, I was interviewed by some of the student reporters, read their post here.





I was recently interviewed for #CreateYourLife thanks to Joyce Chua. Lots of personal thoughts about how I first got interested in writing, my secret Hollywood training, my superhero power as a writer, new books coming, and the books and music and people that inspire me every day. So create your life in your own way too! :)
