Molly's Dreams — prologue
A shy teenager just wants to be loved But first she has to overcome her own past Before she makes the biggest mistake of her life
I was born in the Blue Mountains, Australia in 1996. My family moved around New South Wales while I was growing up but I now live near Canberra where I am studying creative writing. I spent my teenage years writing poetry and fiction. Molly’s Dreams is my first novel and I am currently working on two others while trying to get it published.
I have a strong sense of social justice and hope that infiltrates my writing, particularly human rights and feminist issues which I feel very strongly about.
When I am not writing I like to dance around the house singing or wake early in the morning to listen to the birds talk about their day. Sometimes I walk in the shadows with my eyes open, seeking the moonlight. I also like to find the time and space for playing my guitar, reading, drawing, sleeping and other ways of procrastinating.
I’m a country girl. I am always learning. I have a cat named Tiggles but I call him Tiggs. I am good at remembering faces but terrible with names. I love photography, music and dancing. I think a lot about the past. I bite my fingernails. I am very emotional and show my feelings, but I am loyal, nurturing and sensual. I like to cook, but I am not very neat and hopeless at multitasking. Sometimes I am confident and strong, but most of the time I’m not. I am never perfect.
