Natasha began her foray into creative writing at the age of four when she crafted “Cool Sharks”, an illustrated masterpiece about sharks who ditch the ocean’s depths for the waves and become “surfer dudes”, donning sunnies and surfboards and spouting terribly cool ’80s terms such as “rad”. This magnum opus was inspired by the infamous sharks and surfers of her hometown Port Lincoln, South Australia, where she still resides. She has since, sadly, moved on from poorly illustrated books about cool sharks.
Often (rather rightfully) compared to Daria of the eponymous animation, Natasha has to her name 14 years of newspaper journalism, a self-published children’s book Dragontide and short stories in magazines like Woman’s Day. She hopes to add to this a few extremely disturbing novels exploring her favourite theme: all things dark and twisty.
