I’ve got Georgie on my mind. He was playing the guitar while he sang it. Good morning, beautiful. It was great to meet you last night. I’m just ringing to say. have a fabulous day. I feel like seeing a movie later-I’ll give you a call and see if you want to come. I have to confess I was thrilled. I hate it when people say ciao. Unless they’re Italian, of course-then I adore it. But the rest of the message was so lovely I let it pass
Maggie Alderson was born in London and lives in Sydney. The Good: Pants on Fire could have easily become a cautionary tale about the evils of drug use or promiscuity, but it didn't.
Maggie Alderson was born in London and lives in Sydney. It also avoided cliches with Georgia's best friend, Antony, who's gay, but not a caricature. The secondary characters, and there are quite a few of them, are neither perfect nor 2-dimensional 'types'. They're realistic-people you might expect to meet if you were part of the in-crowd in Sydney.
I grew up reading the Good Weekend every Saturday, and Maggie Alderson's fashion column was a great piece of soft journalism. It was something I looked for each weekend, even though I was the sort of kid who didn't put much store in clothes and who was most comfortable in grass-stained jeans and a loose ponytail. It was the kind of writing that illuminated a world and a topic I'd otherwise have virtually no interest in.
Maggie Aldersonwas born in London, brought up in Staffordshire and educated at the University of St Andrews. She is married, and has one daughter and twelve pairs of Prada shoes. At last we've found her, the female Seinfeld.

When a heartsick London woman moves Down Under to start over, she finds that Sydney is populated with men who look all too familiar-making it far too easy for her to repeat the mistakes of her past.
In this story Alderson introduces a diverse mix of outrageous, larger than life characters - in locations ranging from the streets of Sydney's Kings Cross to the pristine Australian Outback. The flaw in some chick lit these days is the lead characters are written as though they are saints and only mix with the privileged. Alderson doesn't make that mistake, providing a lead character who is fallible and has a back-story - one a broad range of readers could identify with. Some of the darker topics touched on through the story include death, drugs and dependency.
