What a surprise to be featured in my local Sydney paper! Its with much thanks to journalist Kate Moore, who some of us may know better here in the (blog)house as the delightful ms. katiecrackernuts. Kate interviewed me a month or so ago. Thank you Kate, and thank you Manly Daily.

The photograph you might already know, is by the ever-fabulous, David Finato – I love the wonky Dutch buildings behind me on the canal!


PS if you are a northern beaches local, and you still have your friday, July 3 paper, it’s on page 20 in the ‘alive’ entertainment section. Click here for the online version and flick to page 20.

    thank you ibb, paris parfait and bronwyn! I’m not so sure about the photo, but then i’m not sure about any photo of myself. It’s a weird feeling, I much prefer to be behind the camera than in front.

    Imagine being an actress and seeing yourself close up on the big screen – argh!

    Hey Pia, the write up was great and we were inundated with customers wanting a copy, unfortunately Random House the supplier is out stock and the 15 we ordered in a couple of weeks ago sold out in 5 days! They should be back in store and on our website in a week or two. Don’t worry we’ll tweet it when they arrive. Just one more small detail, the Manly Daily gave the RRP as $18, this is the wholesale price, they’re actually $35. But worth every cent! Love your work.
