After working as a Speech Pathologist for 15 years, I embarked on one of life’s most creative journeys and became a mother of two gorgeous sons, Sam and Will.

As I watched them start to pen their first stories, my desire to return my childhood passion of writing, stirred. I dusted off my 1976 Holly Hobby journal and read the romantic, earnest plays I had written as a teenager. I went back to university and completed a Masters of Creative Writing at University of Sydney in 2014. Since this time, I have been writing and publishing poetry in Australian literary journal. In 2016 I won the Meanjin Dorothy Porter poetry prize.
