My name is Michele Connolly and I spent much of my adult life feeling like a misfit.

After leaving corporate to complete a Bachelor of Psychology and write a thesis on personality and happiness I discovered: Weirdness, they name is introversion. Maybe there’s a sprinkling of charmingly neurotic thrown in there too.

In case you’re interested in such things, I also have a business degree (full disclosure – I literally fell asleep in a microeconomics exam), life-coaching qualification, and post-grad studies in business and professional writing. I’ve been interviewed on radio, spoken at conferences, and won awards for my psych studies.

More importantly, I’m in my forties but act about twelve and I live in Sydney with my husband and beloved espresso machine, Tarquin. I’m into writing, books, TV, friendship, wine, embracing your personal weirdness, and trying to stay thin in a world of chocolate.

We don’t have to hug or shake hands, and there’s no need for small talk.

But, you know, you’re welcome here.
