I’m Gabrielle Tozer (nee McMillan), a Sydney-based journalist and soon-to-be author with a weakness for opaque black tights, reggaeton dancing, chicken-salted chips and stringing words together.
In October 2012, I signed a young-adult two-book contract with HarperCollins Publishers and am thrilled to announce my debut novel will hit bookstores and Kindles in February 2014! And that’s not all: I am currently working on my second book (yes, that’s why I still look frazzled and haven’t brushed my hair).
In the past decade, I’ve chained myself to many computers, laptops and mobiles as the senior features writer, chief sub-editor, deputy editor, managing editor or freelance writer on titles including Prevention Magazine Australia, Weight Watchers magazine, Cosmopolitan, DOLLY, Girlfriend, Mother & Baby, Pregnancy & Birth and The Canberra Times.
In addition to my editorial experience, my writing has appeared on websites, including Mamamia and Weight Watchers Online,and in journals and anthologies, such as GOfish, This Is Writing, Take It As Red, Lip and First.
An out and proud nerd, I’m also the recipient of the University Co-op Bookshop Prize For Most Outstanding Creative Writer, Gordon Burgoyne Memorial Prize For Most Outstanding Journalism Student and ABC Triple J Heywire ACT award.
Need something written or edited? Just feel like saying hello? Drop me a line via gabby at gabrielletozer dot com. I’d love to hear from you (especially if you’re wielding Magnums, new episodes of Law & Order: SVU or kikki.K stationery).
