My first love was poetry but I turned to writing fiction in early 2016.  You can still catch me performing my prose poetry at spoken word events occasionally. I promote these events on my news page and blog.

I received a huge injection of enthusiasm when I won a prize in the first short story competition I ever entered – the Financial Crime Prize for the 2017 Scarlet Stiletto Awards, and subsequently set out to write my first novel. I have now completed two mystery manuscripts.

In creative writing, I discovered a penchant for writing mystery tales with twisty tails. It’s a chance to unshackle my mind from my day to day professional life, and a legitimate way for a grown up to have imaginary friends.

You can read samples of my fiction and poetry on this website and follow my blog via the link at the bottom of this page.

I grew up in Melbourne’s east and have lived in East Gippsland, London, Portugal, Murchison on the Goulburn River, and Elsternwick before settling in Warrandyte.

When not working in my communications day job or writing I can be found in my garden or wandering the forests with my staghound Harper.
