Telling Stories

In 2021 I'm writing 38 Short Stories Inspired by prompts from strangers + friends.

You can read about and submit to the project here.

Book new writing workshops here.

What else? I'm freelancing with travel and food writing, mainly in the Margaret River Region, prodding at a novel, and reading as much as I can, which is unfortunately very little.


I'm addicted to the Modern Love column in the New York Times and always have a copy of Nine Stories close by. 

Drop me a line if you want to talk writing, workshops, comps, screen writing, novels or short or flash  fiction.

Winner: Australian Writers' Centre Furious Fiction

May 2020

This quiet domestic study is beautifully nuanced – clear, smooth and illuminating... And almost imperceptibly, without suffering from schmaltz, this becomes a story of hope. A worthy winner that showed further restraint in leaving 50 words in the tank.

- Praise from the Australian Writers' Centre


She wasn't doing a thing that I could see, except standing there leaning on the balcony railing,

holding the universe together.



And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.



One day I will find the right words,

and they will be simple.
