Read my book

Capturing and expressing life in all its glory, to spark a change in thinking … that’s what inspires me to write.

I've had several short stories published to date, my latest being 'The Teacher' in 'These winter months: The Late Orphan Project Anthology'. The book is about the intricate and universal workings of family - regrets, learning, problem solving, daily life, and most definitely, love. It can be found at https://www.createspace.com/6021628.

I was short-listed in the Ada Cambridge Prize, won the inaugural Wyndham Rotary Arts Small Business Award and have a Masters of Communication where I completed a thesis on boys and reading and what it is they like to read.

I write a blog too and work as a consultant in stakeholder relations. Most of all, I love to swim outdoors and practice hot yoga.

I'm currently undertaking a PhD research project to capture the social history and previously undocumented stories of community life on the MMBW Farm, now Melbourne Water’s Western Treatment Plant.
