My second book, SORRY I’M LATE, I DIDN’T WANT TO COME is out in May 2019 in the US, the UK and the Netherlands. It’s about the year I spent: talking to strangers, performing stand-up comedy, travelling solo, trying out improv, going on friend dates and doing a bunch of extrovert-y things.  It’s about being an introvert and trying to extrovert for a full year.


I interview brilliant people throughout the book who guide me through these nightmares.

Embrace the unknown, like I did this year. It led to a lot of unexpected places…insane things happened and I’m excited for you to read about them…

And if you want to read my first book, a memoir about living in Paris, Beijing, New York and Melbourne, GRADUATES IN WONDERLAND (Penguin 2014) is out now.

Shintrovert: a socially awkward introvert, a shy introvert, a SHINtrovert – (OR a pervert who is very into lower legs). This is the official definition, coined in my book.
