She lives in Gympie, Australia.
Sometimes you read a book so special that you want to carry it around with you for months after you've finished, just to stay near it. The Anatomy of Wings is one of those books. * Markus Zusak, author of THE BOOK THIEF (review for THE ANATOMY OF WINGS) * This is, in the end, a story about the tensions of love and anger, between parents and children, between boys and girls and men and women, and about the tension between being alone and being accepted. Fans of Kate Atkinson's Jackson Brodie mysteries will be delighted to find similarly smart, intricate storytelling loaded with genuinely teen concerns. Atmospheric, lyric and unexpected. * Kirkus Reviews * The casual beauty of the language and the complex storytelling style create a haunting, atmospheric novel about friendship, betrayal, and loss * Publishers Weekly * Though the layers are many, they coalesce into a dreamlike, eerie whole told in mesmerizing, sensuous prose. * The Horn Book * With rich, evocative language, Foxlee threads together a complex tale of friendship, murder and betrayal. The Midnight Dress is compelling, heartbreaking and, most of all, impossible to put down. * Book Page *
