Andrea Grigg grew up in Auckland, New Zealand, but has lived more than half her life in Australia. She lives with her husband on Queensland’s Gold Coast, where they have raised their three adult children – two daughters and a son.
Having been a musician all her life, Andrea received a pleasant shock when writing took over as her number one passion. Recently retired from teaching ten-year-olds, if she isn't being a domestic executive or socialising, Andrea can be found in her cave, writing stories.
Andrea's debut novel, A Simple Mistake was a finalist in the 2012 CALEB awards. Her sophomore release, Too Pretty, was published by Rhiza Press (a division of Wombat Books) in August 2014.
Aside from writing, Andrea enjoys reading, music, coffee with friends, and collecting snippets of conversations. She's also a fan of Pride and Prejudice (the Keira Knightley one), The Jane Austen Book Club, The Vow, Dear John… and Terminator Salvation.

Pretty Girls Have Problems Too
by Andrea Grigg
[Kindle | Amazon | The Book Depository]
When being beautiful means you are constantly criticised, how would you react?
Ellie Paxton has endured more than her fair share of criticism - simply because she's beautiful.
Frustrated by a long string of empty relationships, Ellie makes a vow not to date for six months. The same day, she is rescued by the handsome but enigmatic Nathaniel.
Thinking it's unlikely she'll ever see him again, Ellie unburdens herself to him and then they part.
Wanting a fresh start, Ellie leaves her country town and moves to Sydney. An unexpected reunion with her best friend from high school leads her straight to Nathaniel. Appearing reserved and aloof, she discovers this is merely his way of dealing with his intense attraction for her.
But what about her promise?
Ellie has another pressing problem - no job. Frustrated, she gives in to an impulse which could jeopardise any hope of her having a relationship with Nathaniel.
Will he be able to forgive her? And when will Ellie learn to 'let go and let God'?
