A snippet from my work-in-progess memoir. Discover how you can help get the word out and read more.



Do you know those nights where you’re so drunk that your consciousness floats in and out of awareness? Those nights where you wake up in the morning and your memory from the night before is a hazy jumble of images and sensations and you’re not sure how or why certain things happened, or if they even did at all?

What about those nights where you “come to” in the middle of your black out? A friend of mine once told me he regained consciousness while leapfrogging over a bollard. Needless to say, his landing hadn’t been graceful.

That was the type of night this was. A momentary lapse in awareness fuelled by alcohol, where subconscious desire took over.

I woke up with his hands down my pants.

Let me start again. I wasn’t asleep – and he definitely wasn’t molesting me. I just don’t remember how we got from A to B. At point A, we were on my couch, a polite distance between us, chatting about family and friends and drinking a disgusting homemade margarita. (I’ll give you the recipe some time. It involves pouring salt directly into the mixture and thinking that’s a good idea.)

At point B, I could feel his lips pressed against my own and his hands in my underwear.

I’m still writing this, so there’s a few things you can do to help make sure you get to find out what out what happens next.

  1. Get the word out there! The more people who know, the more likely I am to feel peer pressured into finishing.

  2. Get the word out there! The more people who are interested, the more likely publishers will be too.

  3. If you’re a publisher or agent, please contact me. I’d be more than happy to discuss further.

  4. If you know a publisher or agent, please pass on their details or have them contact me.

  5. Follow my Facebook page and like/comment on my blogs and posts. You have no idea how much this helps.
