I am a wearer of many hats - writer, feminist, small business owner, editor, literature designer, author, virtual assistant, website owner, daughter, sister, friend, singer, actor, movie goer, book reader, philosophy student, environmental activist, teller of jokes, - sometimes many of them at the same time.
I am also the hands-on parent for two curious and intelligent boys. We live on the beautiful Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia
What's Your Story?
I grew up in country NSW Australia and moved a lot as a child. This gave me a great desire for travel and a terrific ability to make friends quickly. I’ve lived Japan and the UK as well as Australia and like to think I can call anywhere home.
I’ve been employed in a variety of industries throughout my working life, but the constant thread through everything has been a love of words – writing them, editing them, singing them, reading them, watching them brought to life on screen.
These days I spend most of my time editing documents for infrastructure tenders, running a website for people moving to the Gold Coast, and getting involved with local community music, literature and environmental groups.
