In 1989 I was 15 years old and started writing song lyrics. Why? Because I wanted to be the Australian version of Debbie Gibson. Music artists were in my life, and I started to analyse lyrics, which I guess led me to analyse books…
Little did I know over the seven and a bit years I wrote that it was setting me up for bigger and better scribblings, namely novels over 500 pages and 125,000 words, and novellas, short stories and non-fictions.
Covering a wide range of topics from 1989 to 1992, or volumes 1-3, mostly love, I plagiarise myself a lot, so have a good laugh, especially over the witty one-liners and anecdotes about what was happening, who I wanted to be, or who I had a crush on.
They are not perfect, nor meant to be; they’re just the musings of a young teenage girl with crushes and dreams.
