Biting Anorexia is a memoir of my recovery from anorexia nervosa and major depression.

Based on the diary I kept throughout my illness, Biting Anorexia was published in Australia and New Zealand by Finch Publishing in 2008, and in North America and Canada by New Harbinger Publications in 2009.

I am currently working on a substantially revised second edition.

Mark Z. Danielewski
“Who has never killed an hour? Not casually or without thought, but carefully: a premeditated murder of minutes. The violence comes from a combination of giving up, not caring, and a resignation that getting past it is all you can hope to accomplish. So you kill the hour. You do not work, you do not read, you do not daydream. If you sleep it is not because you need to sleep. And when at last it is over, there is no evidence: no weapon, no blood, and no body. The only clue might be the shadows beneath your eyes or a terribly thin line near the corner of your mouth indicating something has been suffered, that in the privacy of your life you have lost something and the loss is too empty to share.”
Mark Z. Danielewski, House of Leaves

Emily Dickinson
“Morning without you is a dwindled dawn.”
Emily Dickinson

I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control
“I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.”
Marilyn Monroe

Edna St. Vincent Millay
“After all, my erstwhile dear,
My no longer cherished,
Need we say it was not love,
Just because it perished?”
Edna St. Vincent Millay, Collected Poems

Italo Calvino
“If one wanted to depict the whole thing graphically, every episode, with its climax, would require a three-dimensional, or, rather, no model: every experience is unrepeatable. What makes lovemaking and reading resemble each other most is that within both of them times and spaces open, different from measurable time and space.”
Italo Calvino, If on a Winter's Night a Traveler
