I live in Canberra, which is the capital of Australia, a fact known only to me and the 6 other people who live here. To be fair, the population may be higher, but hometowns have a habit of seeming impossibly small when you’re seeking new adventures (which I am, always). I’ve lived in Taiwan, almost lived in Japan and mysteriously find myself in the US every election year, watching old sci-fi movies with my Dad. Currently I get paid to edit legislation, which means I’m knowledgeable about semicolons and a hit at parties. I write because getting the words out frees up valuable real estate in my head that I can use to think about good dance routines and the tricks I’d play if I spoke every language in the world.
