A review for Driven To Sex...

Sure, Tina is a mate from way back, so she's biased just a little.
But her take on things is always different and I love her for that.

This is her take on my latest offering.....

Just finished reading my gorgeous friend's new book. It's a rollicking urban tale set in the most isolated city in the world. Perth's title of 'dullsville' would be sent well on its way if the adventures of Paddo and his new companions are ...anything to go by. I felt like I was right with him on his quest to find love, to make decent memories, to drive the best suburban chicanes, and get the best view of the city lights all without getting shot, stabbed or whacked along the way. How Stevie Wonder and Shirley Bassey get a mention is for me to know and you to find out. Do yourself a favour!
Thanks Teen xoxo

The article that began it all for Driven To Sex

Mid 2005 at 2 or 3 or 4 in the morning, I was sitting in my car adjacent to Langley Park near the Perth CBD, awaiting a girl who was in a booking in the Hyatt hotel.
I wrote this in one take in about 11 minutes. I was too tired to think about it too much. I sent it in to the 'This Life' section of the Weekend Australian the next day. My original title was This Driving Life, which they altered, which was fine by me.
Anyway, I suspect the genesis of the novel, Driven To Sex, was planted in those minutes. This is the article as it appeared in the Review section of the Weekend Australian, Sep 24-25, 2005.

AFL Grandfinal day, as it happened.

I hope you enjoy it.

Driven To Sex is available as an eBook (and hardcopy for Australia & NZ only, at this stage).
