So what's been going on?

Since the publication of Poison Ivy and

Wild Orphans I've been busy with Public Speaking invitations, Book Events and a bit of Media...On June 17 I was delighted to host the closing ceremony of the WillyLitFest with comedian Hung Le.

Current Titles


I have just uploaded my young readers' novel Wild Orphans. For the 9-12 year olds who like native animals and a bit of an escapade, click here to read more 

I am also pleased to say I am in the final stages of a personal piece called Episiotomy. It's about six significant female friendships in my life, all of which went a bit pear shaped.

Author's Statement




I started writing professionally straight out of college. I've written for newspapers, magazines and several commissioned screenplays. Independently I've written stage plays and screenplays, three adult novels and one title for young readers. Each work I have created has either been shortlisted, received development funding (screenplays) or been considered for publication. It doesn't get any easier to publish in the traditional sense but the ideas don't stop, so neither do I. Technology is making it possible now to connect with readers without a third party so if you like my work, please get in touch.
