"I'm almost like a method writer. I find when my characters are angry, I become quite angry and hard to be around. When I'm more buoyant, I can laugh aloud at my own jokes that I put in my narrative," says Christie Thompson.

She's the author of Snake Bite, a plucky coming-of-age story set in suburban Canberra (although, as Christie tells us on the Blocast, it's a story that could apply to any 'burb in Australia).
Christie shared some of her insights into the mental space she occupies when she writes, as well as her physical workspace.

Christie Thompson is an Phd candidate at ANU, tattoo apprentice, and self-confessed 'try-hard artist'. Snake Bite is published by Allen and Unwin, & is available in bookstores/ as an eBook.
