I am an Australian writer based in Perth, Western Australia with a Graduate Diploma of Arts (Professional Writing) from Edith Cowan University. I write short stories, nonfiction and plays, and am currently working on an historical fiction novel.
In 2018, I was awarded a two-week Fellowship at Katharine Susannah Prichard Writers Centre in the Perth hills. I was also accepted as a Peter Cowan Writers’ Centre participant in the Four Centres’ Emerging Writers Program in 2018. This is an initiative by PCWC, FAWWA, KSP, WA Poets Inc and Fremantle Press, and is proudly supported by the Western Australian Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries.
My writing has received recognition in Australian and international competitions and been published in several Australian and international anthologies/journals. Two of my musical theatre scripts for children, Allie’s Amazing Adventures and Plenoch’s Puzzle, have been staged by performing arts schools in Perth. In 2015, I created a ten-minute play Mobiles inspired by the Peter Cowan short story “Mobiles” for the Peter Cowan Writers Centre Inc/StagesWA Playwright Project, as part of the Centre’s 20th Anniversary celebrations.
I have worked as a researcher and writer for a community history museum in Perth, and in the areas of publicity, communications and grant writing for not-for-profit organisations.
