Welcome to my writing website!

Like most things in life, this website is a work in progress and I’d appreciate any feedback or top tips.

When I’m not writing, I enjoy tutoring literacy online (mainly to student teachers), hanging out with my family, watching the world go by, and failing to hold back when it comes to buying books, eating good food and drinking Australian wine. Admittedly I’m not the most prolific blogger (mainly because i’m trying to keep focused on my creative writing), but I try to write about some of the amazing novels I read, and this year I intend to blog more about writing courses and writing craft books. Did I forget to mention, one of the other things I love is being a student myself? As I participated on a Faber, Allen and Unwin ‘Write a Novel Course’ last year, there may be some reminiscing about that, and this year I’m doing a screenwriting course with RMIT in Melbourne, so I’m going to try to blog on what I’ve learnt at least on a monthly basis (don’t hold me to that).

2019 is also going to be a big year for me because by hook or by crook (or myself-publishing) I intend to become a published author. Watch this space – I’ll also be writing about that experience.

All that’s left to say is I hope you find some nuggets of interesting information on these pages.

May you love what you read and read what you love!
