Robert experiences the world differently to 99% of the population. He has Asperger's Syndrome. He struggles to accept himself, tries to understand others - but can't - and find a girlfriend. Especially find a girlfriend - he's decided it's his special project for the year. Accompanied by his quirky flatmates, Chloe (who also has Asperger's and mental illness, amongst other things), Stef (who hasn't, but doesn't mind) and their oddly-named kitten, Robert endures a myriad of awkward moments in his quest to meet a nice, normal girl ... and not even a major earthquake will stop him.

About the Author

I've been writing off and on approximately forever. I'm middle-aged in a chronological sense, but young at heart. My favourite genres to read are speculative fiction and YA, but I also read some contemporary and some non-fiction books. My favourite author is Connie Willis, but I mostly read indie authors nowadays. My other interests include editing, hanging out with other writers, walking, playing backgammon, dancing Ceroc and spending time with my two boys.

I've co-authored three humorous fantasy books with Diane Berry: Dragons Away! (on the strength of which we won the Sir Julius Vogel Award 2012 for Best New Talent), Growing Disenchantments and Fountain of Forever.

I also enjoy copy-editing and proofreading other authors' manuscripts.

Where I live:

Christchurch is a city of approx 400,000 people on the east coast of New Zealand, which is about as far away from anywhere else as it is possible to be.

In September 2010 and February 2011, Christchurch was ravaged by major earthquakes that left much of the central business district in ruins, thousands of people homeless and some parts of the city uninhabitable.

But some of us are still here, writing.
