Anna Blackie is a real-life hopeless millennial who spends her time advising other millennials on how to function in an attempt to avoid her own shortcomings. Her long-term love of words led her into a Bachelor of Arts majoring in English and Writing at Macquarie University. After that, she decided three years of full-time reading just weren’t enough and went into publishing, where she now works in the editorial department of an independent Australian publisher.
How to Adult came to be when Anna realised that there was a shocking amount she didn’t know about how to function in the adult world so she decided to write her very own guide to being a grown-up and fill it with all the things she hoped she would one day understand.
She lives in Sydney and dreams of one day eating an avocado in her very own house.
