I loved writing as a child. Apparently I used to pen stories on scrap paper before I could actually form the letters. It was all pot-hooks and scribble. Yet Mum would ask, ‘What are you writing?’ And I’d say, ‘A story’. Then she’d ask me to tell it to her.
A story to tell brings my passions and skills together. My aim is that you will leave this site feeling more confident and clear about the skills you have and the skills you need to develop your ideas. Think big. Be curious. Explore. If you need help bringing your story to life, contact me.
As an experienced writer and editor and qualified teacher, I enjoy engaging with people to get the best from their ideas. Over the years I’ve developed skills in the art of writing and editing fiction; non fiction, including journalism, essays and memoirs; ghostwriting and copywriting. To see some samples, please go to my recent work.
One of my favourite contributions to the writing community is empowering writers of all levels to connect with their work. It might be your first blog. It could be your second novel. Perhaps you need a new website. Whatever the task, if it involves writing, editing or simply telling your story clearly and passionately, contact me to discuss your thoughts.

As well, I keep my professional memberships current and regularly participate in professional development. I love learning about how to convey ideas and working with people and organisations to get them out there.
As Administrative and Creative Support person, I'm your friendly first point of contact who listens to your story and your needs then puts you in touch with one of our professional writers, editors and coaches.
My background is in project coordination, writing and visual arts.
At school I used to read aloud stories I’d written that the other kids couldn’t hear over my own laughing. Later as a freelance journalist my stories and photos appeared in publications such as The Age, Australian, Rolling Stone, Westerly and the Planthunter.
In the university sector I have helped coordinate library redevelopments, national data projects and research centres, and gathered a lot of material for future writing projects!
These days I incorporate my experience in writing, photography and organisation into my working life. To me this is a perfect mix. I am passionate about the work I am involved in, allowing the people I work with to get on with their writing, editing and coaching.
