"Talking With Myself" is a collection of her works from 1990-2010, a period of time that saw her living in London and LA, as well as her home town of Melbourne. It is a deeply personal work, a documentation of one girl's rite of passage into adulthood, but one that many have identified with from all over the world.
Initially presented as an online collection, this book version is now available for all those who have a love of books, a love of poetry and a love of life.
