My published works include flash and short fiction,  non-fiction articles and features, some of which are peer-reviewed. My debut book is nonfiction and it’s called Bowl the Maidens Over: Our First Women Cricketers. It’s about the first games of women’s cricket in Australia in 1874.

As an editor, the projects are diverse. I edit novels, novellas, short stories, anthologies, business and instruction books, diaries, cookbooks and tarot and oracle card sets. Each project is a new adventure.

I live in Melbourne with my husband and two adult children, two cats and a dog. You’ll generally find me involved in a committee or organisation that’s linked to the writing community, or on panels judging awards. Community is a great aspect of my work and I love staying in touch with other writers and editors. I’ll say g’day if I see you at a convention or event, so seek me out. 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 channel to tell them.
