Thanks for dropping by! I’m a writer and communications specialist living in Naarm (Melbourne) who is fascinated by people’s stories. I love hanging out with other writers, reading or listening to stories of all kinds, drawing and taking time out in nature.
I run writing retreats and have facilitated creative writing groups for many years. I am interested the importance of play in creative pursuits.
I am currently working on a few manuscripts with the aim to have them published. One is inspired by my First Fleet convict ancestor Ann Sandlin and her daughter Elizabeth Boulton. It asks the question of what decisions a mother may make for the betterment of their child’s future. Another that is aimed for the young adult reader is set in the near future and asks the question: what happens when the rain stops? A third manuscript that I am working on is set in modern day and asks the question: what is it to be normal?

I didn’t set my goals this year, and it didn’t feel right. Did it set off my mid year crisis? Or was that always going to happen?
The week that we went for a long 3500 km drive and reconnected with each other, the land and nature.
