I’m an Australian fantasy writer inspired by the environment and folklore of this great southern land.
My writing is influenced by my experiences living and travelling in rural Australia. My stories explore animal behaviour and the human-animal bond, coming from over 20 years working in the animal industry, including as a veterinary nurse, stablehand and puppy school teacher.
I graduated with an Advanced Diploma of Arts in Professional Writing from the Adelaide College for the Arts, South Australia. I was selected to attend Bryce Courtenay’s Last Masterclass in September 2012, and have also attended Fiona McIntosh’s fiction masterclass and business of writing workshops.
My bookshelf includes authors such as Fiona McIntosh, Glenda Larke, Joe Abercrombie, Brent Weeks and Robin Hobb.
I’d like to hear from anyone with an interest in animals, writing, reading or Australian folklore and mythology.
