Writer in residence: Kathy Lette

Kathy Lette divides her time between being a full time writer, demented mother (now there's a tautology) and trying to find a shopping trolley that doesn't have a clubbed wheel.

Kathy first achieved succés de scandale as a teenager with the novel Puberty Blues, which was made into a major film, directed by Bruce Beresford and an 8 hour mini series.

After several years as a singer with the Salami Sisters and a newspaper columnist in Sydney and New York (collected in the book Hit and Ms) and as a television sitcom writer for Columbia Pictures in Los Angeles, her novels, Puberty Blues, Girls Night Out, The Llama Parlour, Foetal Attraction, Mad Cows, Altar Ego, Nip'N'Tuck, Dead Sexy and How To Kill Your Husband (and Other Handy Household Hints) (recently staged by The Victorian Opera, Australia) became international best-sellers.

Her novels have been published in 14 languages around the world. Kathy appears regularily as a guest on the BBC and Sky news. Kathy Lette's plays include “Grommits”, “Wet Dreams”, “Perfect Mismatch” and “I'm So Happy For You I Really Am.” Her latest book is Till Death or a Little Light Maiming Do Us Part.
