In 1989 I was 15 and started writing song lyrics. Why? Because I wanted to be the Australian version of Debbie Gibson, on whom I was also majorly crushing. I thought I was hot and wrote prolifically, although I started writing late in the year. I was also playing drums in my music class’s end-of-year musical.

 

In 1990 I was 16 and out of school, listening to more, doing more, and reading more. So more artists were in my life and I was starting to analyse song lyrics, which I guess led me to analyse books…

 

Little did I know over the seven and a bit years I wrote that it was setting me up for bigger and better scribblings, namely novels over 500 pages and 100,000 words, and now novellas and short stories.

 

This book features lyrics I wrote from 1989 to 1990 and contains some witty one liners and anecdotes about what was happening, who I wanted to be, or who I had a crush on.

 

They are not perfect, nor meant to be, they’re just the musings of a young teenage girl with crushes and dreams.

 

Enjoy!
