Life is an adventure.
Adventure is scary.
What’s a girl to do?
Over-sharing on the internet since 2004 on the topics of love, fear, travel, adventure and art.
This is why I carry around
a camera that weighs more
than a well-fed terrier.
New love. Exotic destinations.
A once in a lifetime adventure.
What could go wrong?
I'm a writer who travels. I'm a painter who potters. I'm a designer and an illustrator by trade. I'm a little bit bohemian, a little bit irreverent, and a little bit serious. I worry. A lot. I learned to love adventure after I fell for a man with a humble boat and a plan to sail the world. I'm a new author, and my debut book is 'Love with a Chance of Drowning'. My home is Melbourne, Australia.
“Wow, what a book. Exciting. Dramatic. Honest. Torre DeRoche is an author to follow.” —Australian Associated Press
“A funny, irresistibly offbeat tale about the risks and rewards of living, and loving, with an open heart.” —Kirkus Reviews
Tell me your story. Write a post on your blog outlining your fearful adventure. It could be something ridiculously ambitious, like an epic journey around the world on a unicycle, or something sweet and simple, like going to a nursing home to read books to the elderly. It can be anything at all. Just two conditions: it scares you, it excites you. Find out more…
