Wow! Quite the overnight (or, um, ten years plus) success you are.

How many different countries has Black Juice sold in?

Only Aus, US and UK so far, although Angela has been waving it under some European noses.

Hi! I'm a student from Fredericksburg Academy and I recently read your short story Singing My Sister Down. I really enjoyed your story even though it was disturbing. Even though I found the story disturbing, I couldn't stop reading because it was interesting and I kept on wanting to learn more. I liked how the story was told from the perspective of a young child because Ik's brother added innocence to the story. If you are interested in reading more of my thoughts on Singing My Sister Down, visit my blog.
