This Girl's Abroad

This Girl’s Abroad is a coming of age novel set in Melbourne, Australia, in the late 1970s, before email, mobile phones, Facebook and Twitter, and before platform shoes and flares became retro. It was also a time when The Pill had become freely available to single women who took up the challenge of a changing world with gusto but maybe not a lot of forethought.

Samantha’s life is perfect – great clothes, great job, great boyfriend – until she finds her boss wants to shag her and her boyfriend is shagging someone else. But at least the clothes are still fabulous – and even more so if you’re a dog, as Sam carves out a new career for herself in canine haute couture. Now if only she could just sort out her love life.

The book is comedy, black in places, and has a good mix of romance, sex and violence. It also covers the correct technique for defrosting a dead pug.


  1. Sounds terrific. Let us know when it launches.

  2. I most definitely will. If Rebel introduce a Chick Lit/Romance imprint, then it might be as early as April/May. Otherwise it will be mid/late next year.
