The weather where I live

Where I live, the climate is remarkably pleasant. So pleasant that, by and large, the weather is a thing worth having a conversation about. Small-talk so easily grows to big talk, and even complaining comes with a tacit understanding that we're very lucky here in Western Australia.

There are crazy hot days. And crazy cold days. And days we'd call extreme by comparison. Those aren't as nice, but they're nothing compared to the extended greys of London or Seattle. Or the frosty weather in Alaska. Or the oppressive heat of New York and Dubai. Or the humidity of Singapore and Kuala Lumpur.

I love the feeling of being "swaddled" by the climate here, and take none of it for granted. Many times, my dear significant other and I have talked about living in a different city for a while. Many times, people have told me I should give it a go for the life experience and to broaden my horizons.

But the truth is I love it in Perth. It's the perfect place for my equatorial blood and seasonal appetites. It's home.

Out Now: The Guy from the Internet

A sweet romance with a touch of family drama.

Holly Chee does not have her life together. She's flip-flopped on uni courses and career choices, and somehow scared off her long-term fiancée-to-be, much to the chagrin of her immigrant parents.

But she does have her streaming channel, where she broadcasts her art from her one-bedroom Mount Lawley apartment. And she has that guy from France... assuming he's even who he says he is.

The Guy From The Internet is a sweet #OwnVoices Asian-Australian romance novella, set in the world of Somerville Downs.

Now available on Amazon in digital and paperback.
