She is the sister of author Jaclyn Moriarty. After leaving school, Moriarty worked in advertising and marketing at a legal publishing company. She then ran her own company for a while before taking work as a freelance advertising copywriter. In 2004, after obtaining a masters degree at Macquarie University in Sydney her first novel Three Wishes, written as part of the degree, was published. Three further novels have been published." The author's commentary on this work is: "I had always wanted to write a story about time travel but I found the logistics made my head explode. Then I read a story about a woman in the UK who lost her memory and behaved like a teenager she didn t recognise her husband or children. I realized that memory loss is a form of time travel. So I came up with the idea of a woman, Alice, who loses 10 years of her memory. She thinks she is 29, pregnant with her first child and blissfully in love with her husband. She is horrified to discover she is 39, with 3 children and in the middle of a terrible divorce. It s like the younger Alice has travelled forward in time. Readers tell me that what they liked best about this novel was how it made them think about the choices they d made and wonder how their younger selves would feel about the lives they are leading now.
