About me

My short stories, poems, and feature articles have been published in The Margaret River Press short story anthology, Pigface and Other StoriesWesterly, Cordite, The Guardian, The Big Issue, The Australian, Green and other places. As well as writing fiction, I write for newspapers and magazines, mostly about houses, architecture, gardening, travel and sustainability.

Last year my second manuscript, a psychological suspense novel called The Night Village She Came To Stay (I don’t plan to keep that title, it’s on loan from Simone de Beauvoir) was shortlisted for The Hungerford Award. I am now revising it and hope to have some good news on that front soon. You can read more about it on the Fremantle Press website.

Along with writing fiction, I am also a copywriter, ghostwriter and editor, and have done my time as a sub editor on magazines including Gardens Illustrated, BBC Good Food and Psychologies – please get in touch if you need something written or edited. I now live in Berlin, Germany with my family, but I am originally from Perth, Western Australia.
