I am a Melbourne based writer and Arts teacher. I have won a number of short story competitions and been published in Australian anthologies and journals, and in Fish Anthology (Ire) and Aesthetica Annual (UK). I’m a member of Io Writers who meet fortnightly for wine, laughter, words and workshopping. When not writing I teach Art to primary school students, play the djembe drum, play netball, travel, and support my favourite AFL team, the Blues.
The short story is my favourite form but I’ve also written poetry and a couple of novels, both unpublished and both providing ample opportunity for editing practise.
Favourite writers: Colum McCann, Alice Munro, Edna O’Brien, Ronan Bennett, Tim Winton, Evie Wyld, amongst others.
I aim to write every day, even if only a little and only for a short time.
