Description

Victoria Eliza Annie MacLean can't escape actors. Her father Richard, who raised her in a bohemian and somewhat morally negligent household, is a famous actor. Her childhood playmate and ",prince", Billy is inspired and encouraged by Richard to pursue his dream of acting. All the men she is seriously attracted to turn out to be actors - and not just in their professional lives. With so much drama in her life, Eliza is determined to be normal and - like many people from dysfunctional families - become a psychologist, despite her faerie looks and her penchant for playing bluegrass fiddle. Indeed, Eliza's life is anything but normal. Annie Warwick, as the witty and humorous Omniscient Narrator, entertains us, with sex and romance, strange coincidences, dramatic action sequences and bloody violence in this modern-day melodrama.

Auteur

Annie Warwick was born in England but has lived in Australia since she was 4 years old. She currently lives in Tasmania in the middle of a deep, dark deciduous forest with two delicious young men and a geriatric cat. She concedes, with some regret, that she is lying about the two delicious young men. Annie trained as a health professional somewhat later in life than is usual, having been preoccupied with child-raising and office duties. She has written a multitude of poems and vignettes, as well as the terribly droll "Arachnophobicon", all unpublished. She looks forward to, one day, no longer being a health professional, so she can roll around ecstatically in the mediocrity of her own spare time: travelling, raising chooks, making soft furnishings, learning to play the piano again and, of course, writing.
