Natasha Lester: #Robinpedia

Natasha Lester is an Australian writer with a Masters in Creative Writing and a PhD in being farken fabulous. When she isn’t writing she enjoys yoga, sorting through her extensive lipstick collection, buying shoes, and drinking gin. I believe her gin cupboard looks something like this. 

Prior to entering the Australian authorial world Natasha Lester worked in public relations and marketing. She has worked for heavyweights such as L’Oréal, Maybelline and Harlequin. Thankfully she abandoned the glamorous life of PR and became a povo writer instead. It involves just as much drinking of gin but far less money.

 

Lester’s first book, What is Left Over, After was published by Freemantle Press in 2010.She did what any first time author would do and took a bunch of shelfies. Don’t pretend that we don’t all do it. This was followed up in 2012 with If I should Lose You. For her third book, Lester switched to writing historical romance. She released A Kiss From Mr Fitzgerald in 2016 through Hachette, this was quickly followed up by Her Mother’s Secret in 2017.

 

When Natasha Lester isn’t doing yoga whilst writing and applying lipstick she teaches writing. Frequently through The Australian Writers’ Centre.

Mrs Woog: #Robinpedia

Standard

Mrs Woog, AKA Kayte Murphy, is an Australian blogger, author, and lover of slippers. On the side she finds the time to make world famous cheese toasties, and create a variety of cocktails involving gin. She does not like pina coladas or getting caught in the rain… unless gin is substitute into the pina colada, and the rain consists of gin.

Mrs Woog released her first novel in 2016, Primary School Confidential through Allen and Unwin. Having been a former primary school teacher, having two children, as well as attending one herself in the past, gives Mrs Woog a unique insight into the rich tapestry, often flecked with tomato sauce and glitter, that is primary school. She brought her usual brand of irreverent humour that she displays in her popular blog, Woogs World, to the book and it was well received by readers.

In 2016 Mrs Woog received the news that “mummy bloggers” were dead. She took the news of her demise in her stride and continued to blog, even trying her hand at creating the tomato sauce diet. It did not catch on, however, Mrs Woog has continued to grow in popularity despite her “death” and that of her fellow “mummy bloggers.”

Recently a crack of knuckles was heard ringing across Sydney so we can only assume that she has begun working on her second novel.
