IMG_6880-2I thought I would put all my interviews in one place for ease of reference.

I was on ABC’s The Drum and later spoke with Elly Duncan for a deeper dive into the need for diverse autism representation in books and pop culture.

I spoke to Katherine Collette on my favourite podcast (!!) The First Time Podcast about Own Voices, pandemics, and the joys of waiting.

Please Don’t Hug Me was the May pick for Kill Your Darling’s First Book Club. There is a review from Ellen Cregan and we had a great chat for the KYD podcast. I also did a Shelf Reflection interview.

Anna Whateley interviewed me for the Sydney Writers’ Festival Podcast series.

I did an interview with Books + Publishing where we talked about what it was like getting an autism diagnosis, epistolary novels, feeling ‘seen’ and vulnerability. B+P also featured a review by Charlotte Guest.

I wrote a post for the Readings blog, where I highlighted three things I’ve learned from getting an autism diagnosis.

I spoke to Rhianna Patrick at ABC Radio about the process of writing the book.

I had an in-conversation event with Nina Kenwood at Oz Authors Online that can be viewed on YouTube.

I did Ten Terrifying Questions with Booktopia, in which I talked about autism, fairies, my emo phase, crap pay in journalism, Hannah Gadsby, #LoveOzYA and my advice for aspiring writers.

Please Don’t Hug Me was a Staff Favourite pick for April with Booktopia.

I spoke to Andrew Pople who hosts Final Draft on 2ser about writing, representation and our love of books.

I spoke to The Bookish Bex as part of the Autistic Pride Readathon about autistic rep—the good and not so good.

Autistic writer Clem Bastow and I exchanged letters (well, emails) as a little nod to ‘Please Don’t Hug Me’ for Amaze.
