Item: A signed copy of “ The Year Nick McGowan Came To Stay”


Book Information: Rachel Hill is the girl most likely to succeed. And the girl most likely to have everything under control … that is, until her father invites Nick McGowan, the hottest boy at school, to live with them. Rachel sees a recipe for disaster, but her best friend Zoë thinks it’s the perfect opportunity for lerve. Nick and Rachel get off on the wrong foot. Nick immediately labels Rachel as spoilt and uptight. Rachel dismisses Nick as lazy and unfocused. But a secret from Nick’s path draws them together and makes the year Nick McGowan came to stay one that Rachel will never forget.

Brief Bio: In 1993 Rebecca graduated from QUT with a Bachelor of Business (Communication) and started writing media releases, feature articles, speeches and newsletters for a living. After three years on magazines (and a dodgy Vegas wedding under her belt), Rebecca decided to have a go at writing her first novel. The Girl Most Likely is a comedy about a former travel writer who tries to put her life back together after secretly getting married in Vegas. The novel was published by UQP in March 2003 and spent 16 consecutive weeks in the Mary Ryan’s Top 10. AFI award-winning Australian actress Pia Miranda (Looking for Alibrandi, Garage Days, Secret Life of Us) has optioned the film rights with Icon Films and hopes to turn the book into a feature film.
Rebecca’s second novel, The Year Nick McGowan Came To Stay, is the prequel to The Girl Most Likely and was released in May 2006 in Australia and April 2008 in the US. It debuted as a stage play at Brisbane’s La Boite Theatre in May 2007. Rebecca’s third novel, Joel and Cat Set The Story Straight, was published in August 2007 and co-written with her good friend Nick Earls.
When she’s not writing novels, Rebecca writes a weekly column for The Sunday Mail newspaper and she gives motivational talks and runs writing workshops in schools and businesses across the country. Rebecca is an Ambassador of War Child Australia and The Pyjama Foundation.

    The film version of the book will hopefully be in production next year! So don’t resell it if you win it! Bec x

    Sorry == error. It’s The Girl Most Likely that will be in production for film. Not Nick McGowan. But don’t resell it anyway!
