At age 11, June developed anorexia nervosa, an illness that challenged and shaped her life. A Girl Called Tim is about June's 40-year, unrelenting quest to reclaim her identity, grab hold of the hand of that little girl lost, and set out on new adventures to reconnect with, strengthen and explore her true healthy self.
This book is about hope and never giving up in the quest to live a free and fulfilling life.

June resigned from a longtime career in print journalism in 2007 to write A Girl Called Tim. This publication of her inner story has led to the writing of eight more books about eating disorders. Today June is a non-fiction storyteller, with a special passion for the diary. Journaling was an important survival, coping and healing tool during her illness and recovery, and this collection of diaries is drawn on extensively in A Girl Called Tim. The diaries went on to become a major resource in June's Ph.D. in Creative Writing, which explores how to create a book from diary excerpts, and more specifically, how diary-writing can be a self-help and therapeutic tool for people with an eating disorder. Believing everyone has a story to tell, and that everyone's life counts, June shares her literary skills as a life-writing workshop presenter and mentor to those seeking to use journaling for healing, self-renewal and story sharing. A mental health advocate, June writes and speaks internationally on the theme 'Hope at Every Age' and serves on national and international mental health and advocacy organizations. Her websites and blog supports this work.
June lives beside the sea on the Bellarine Peninsula, Victoria, Australia. Her prime inspirations are family and friends, the stories of others, her two cats and dog, and walks along the seashore. Read more about June and her books at and
