About Anna

Hi there! I have a PhD in young adult fiction (literary criticism), a first-class Honours in English Literature, and a Post-Grad Certificate in Education. All of which hides a tumultuous life not understanding my own neurodiversity, while endlessly trying to find meaning, and help others do the same.

I’m a believer in community, so I became a member of the Queensland Writer’s Centre, and love to attend writer events, conferences, twitter storms, and book launches. I’m also a strong advocate for my neurodiverse community.

My amazing agent, Danielle Binks (of Jacinta di Mase) is finding a place in the world for my contemporary YA, Peta Lyre’s Rating Normal.  It’s awesome.

My home tries to contain two parents, three children, two dogs and two rescued guinea pigs. I occasionally teach YA/Children’s Literature and Sociology to preservice teachers.
