Why hello

Hello. I'm Gabrielle Tozer. Thanks for popping by my corner of the internet. Shall I put the kettle on? (Correct answer: yes.) Sorry I didn’t tidy up.

A little about me: I’m an internationally published author and freelance journalist, editor, social media specialist and copywriter with a weakness for chips, television and stringing words together. I've published three YA novels: The Intern, which won the State Library of Victoria’s 2015 Gold Inky Award, Faking It and Remind Me How This Ends. My first picture book, Peas and Quiet (illustrated by Sue deGennaro), was published in June 2017, and my YA contemporary short story ‘The Feeling From Over Here’ (featured in Begin, End, Begin: A #LoveOzYA Anthology) is also out now. My debut children's novel, Melody Trumpet, came out in 2019 and my next YA novel, Can't Say It Went To Plan, is out now.

When I’m not writing books, I’m word-wrangling as a freelance journalist, sub-editor, copywriter and social media specialist for magazines, websites, agencies, businesses and brands. I’m addicted to sharing my passion for creativity and storytelling, so you’ll also find me chatting at festivals, in schools or with the media whenever someone lets me near a microphone. I've also been featured on Weekend Today, Triple J and ABC Radio, as well as in The Sydney Morning Herald, Dolly, Girlfriend, TV Week and Cosmopolitan. Anyway, have a snoop around and thanks again for visiting my nook. You’re a delight. Yes, you. No, not that person eating a hot dog behind you. YOU.

Tozer shows that fun novels categorized as chick lit can deal with much more than consumerism and superficiality. No faking: Tozer’s new novel is a memorable read.

Gabrielle Tozer has delivered another relevant, contemporary fiction novel for teens with FAKING IT, as we once again experience the world of glossy magazines and all the angst involved in transitioning from dependent teenager to independent adult. Funny, entertaining and engaging, FAKING IT also offers teen readers some very relevant messages about the importance of staying true to yourself, even if that truth is simply admitting that you have no idea what you are doing. Both THE INTERN and FAKING IT are highly recommended for readers looking for entertaining contemporary fiction for teens that is both light-hearted and insightful.
