Coming soon

An Australian coming-of-age novel

Seb longs for another life. A life far away from the remote farm that is now his home. A life far away from his mundane chores and short-tempered father. But when new neighbours move in, Seb hopes his luck is finally about to change. Could Jake, the enigmatic boy with a dangerous glint in his eye, be Seb’s ticket out of The Nowhere? And if so, how far are they both willing to go to escape?

Tender in parts, brutal in others, The Nowhere is a coming-of-age story that will not only resonate with the LGBT+ community, but anyone who has been young, isolated and infatuated – all at once.

  • teenage boy in fieldWhat is new adult fiction?
    As I was writing my new novel The Nowhere – an Australian coming-of-age novel with LGBTI+ themes – it dawned on me that it could be a tricky book to market. This is because even when I came up with the original concept and sketched out my plan, I knew I wanted to create a juxtaposition between the protagonist’s story being told as both a teenager and an adult.
  • keyboardHow to write a novel
    There’s nothing more satisfying than typing the last few words of your novel. All the hard work, late nights and sacrifice have led up to this moment. That satisfying ahhh you must allow yourself, followed by at least a few weeks of doing anything but looking at your story.
