I am R L Smith, a Melbourne based writer and poet.  I am currently working on a mystery novel and set up this website to track and share my writing escapades. Thanks for dropping by to find out about me and my writing.

You can check out some of my short stories and poetry, or follow my blog via this site.   I post on my blog once a week each Friday.  The blog contains musings about writing and my food garden (another passion) and the occasional random rant. I’ll make sure I let you know via the blog when I finish my crime fiction novel. You can subscribe via the link at the bottom of this page.

All the photographs on this site are my own.  You can see more photography by following me on Instagram.
