AUTHOR | EDITOR

I’m a Melbourne-based author, researcher and award-nominated editor. I write nonfiction and short fiction for myself, nonfiction for clients and I edit a variety of fiction and non-fiction. My writing has appeared in peer-reviewed journals, online and in magazines and anthologies. My debut book, Bowl the Maidens Over: Our First Women Cricketers was released in 2021.

I live in Melbourne with my husband and two adult children, two cats and a dog. Community is a great aspect of my work and I love staying in touch with other writers and editors. I’ll say g’day at a convention or event, so if you recognise me, say hello! In my spare time I also organise writing retreats.

There are plenty of stories to tell; we just need to be clear on what our stories are then find the right way to shape and channel them.
