I’m an Australian citizen, I live in Australia, my family lives here, I pay taxes here and I write about what I’m familiar with, geographically.
So my stories are set in Australia. They have Australian locations and they’re mainly around the Sydney area. It’s where I live.
It’s been suggested to me that in using Australian suburbs, street names and other geographical locations I’m alienating a lot of ‘international' readers, who may not be familiar with these places.
