As I have ranted about of recent, last Monday I was interviewed by my new friend Patrick for his podcast project: MyNY.


I’m in love with FollowMeToNYC being featured on MyNY … SUCH an honor.

I talk a lot about inspiration in these parts. Patrick is inspiring. The two of us connected on Instagram and within a week were sitting in my apartment chatting about writing, australia, new york city and so many other things.

I hope you all enjoy our conversation, and that you continue to enjoy his program every week.

And thank you again Patrick!! Love.

This morning I wrote a letter to my pen pal in Australia. We bumped into each other one day and have been in love ever since. When you believe you’re from outer space, and you run into someone with similar understanding – you essentially recognize each other immediately.

It’s been 16 days since I busted my foot. I’m still bloody icing it. My best friend and I were laughing last night that I continue to use the “sandwich pack” blue gel cooler that an angel appeared and provided me with the morning I crawled down to the lobby of my building at 4am to ask, “Ummm… is there a hospital around?” Continue reading

manifesting books and apartments etc

All of my energy is focussed on finishing my novel so I can get an Agent, a bit of extra cash from book selling, and an apartment bought for the puppies to come live in.

How hard can it be?

I started working on a video blog today, I haven’t made one in for three months.

I really can’t think about anything other than the novel at the moment. It’s exciting, overwhelming, and eye-opening. Over the past two weeks, the final bits and pieces to tie things together and steer the ship have magically clicked in place.

I often think that magic is the only reliable resource. It always shows up when you need it, though it may take a bit of conjuring. Continue reading

I wasn’t here yesterday, but I have the most AMAZING excuse.

Yesterday I had the perfect pleasure of escorting the most beautiful Jessica Tremp and her equally stunning partner in evening explorations during their first visit to New York City!

We ate Italian food and gossiped until we gasped for breath. We hugged and shook our heads and widened our eyes at stories and I’m fairly certain tears of joy were involved at some stage. Continue reading

library walk

Whilst dangling out of my 18th story window the other day in giddy delight during a much required sister visit, I noticed the New York City public library is down the street from me.


Considering this page began barefoot in a Queensland farmhouse roughly 1,000 kilometers north of Sydney… it’s quite spectacular, really.

Furthermore, my walk to work each day involves me wandering across Library Walk and up 5th Avenue.

I literally just laughed out loud typing that.

I have all these large aspirations of content organization, new page construction, story submission, and other things.

Madness. Everywhere…
