Mandy is an author and freelance writer living on the Gold Coast, Australia. She goes nicely with glass of champagne and a pair of toe socks.

She’s previously worked as a television journalist, as a corporate broadcast producer for brands such as Disneyland, Adidas and Virgin Atlantic, and as a political media advisor.

For warm fuzzies, Mandy marvels at sunsets, walks her slobber-chopped boxer, Captain, and plays Scrabble with her family.
