Her first novel, She’s With The Band (Allen & Unwin, 2008), is a Young Adult coming-of-age about a trio of teenagers who start a band. It is based on her own experience "singing" in a "band" called Dead Dead Girls despite having very little musical ability. Her second novel Parched (Holiday House, 2014) is a YA sci-fi dystopia set in a world without water. It was inspired by years of being a scrappy student revolutionary while at the University of Technology, Sydney.
