These days, she rides the 470 bus line in Sydney’s inner west.
The paperback edition features six full-page illustrations by the talented young artist, Paden Hunter.

Congratulations on Permission to Lie, Julie, I consumed the stories voraciously. I loved reading about the contemporary world I know, the corporate world, but also the worlds of idiosyncratic families and individuals — and for contrast the stories set in the US were a Mad Men-style reminder of how much has changed and hasn’t changed for women in our society. Thoroughly recommended. Great title too!
Well— I’d like to be ‘knowing and true’ at any rate. Fiona McGregor has it right. A terrific collection. I hope others will check out your book and the website and leave an appreciative message too!
