Head down by the river in South Australia, sit very still and snap a block of chocolate. If you believe hard enough, you may summon Riv. A unique creature, she’s not yet well known for the YA (Young Adult) steampunk universe thrumming through her head, nor the random slew of social media posts, poems, and works of fiction. If she were here right now, she’d say “heya!” (not g’day because only her husband truly says that). She’d check if you’ve eaten today—because Riv’s also mum, captain, and crew to two kids—then endanger your hearing through her boundless fixation on fantasy writing, reading and boats. What’s that? You want more? Oh, she’s got more! Click below, me hearties!

 

I swear, my brain is steampunk; full of copper, odd noises, and where is that steam coming from?

There's a certain pace readers expect in YA. I need to meet it, surpass it, or smash it altogether.

The insatiably insightful, magnanimous, prophetic space where Riv writes all manner of things, including book reviews—aka: a blog.
