Mountain Secrets is a poetry anthology produced by Ginninderra Press and edited by Joan Fenney.  It contains one of my poems.  I had some fun with this.

It contains 150 poems by Ginninderra authors and can be bought through Ginninderra Press:  Here

Keeping it in the Family has won the Society of Women Writers Book Award for Fiction!

I'm over the moon.  I've been awarded this beautiful trophy.


I'm very proud of the stories in this book, and if you want to know more visit my Keeping it in the Family page.  I have also posted a review by Janita Cunnington


I've been busy lately with voluntary work for various organisations.  I'm the Workshop coordinator for the Society of Women Writers which means I need to line up workshop presenters once a month.  Please contact me if you are interested in presenting a workshop.  I'm looking for workshop presenters for most of 2019.


I'm also the editor of The Mainsheet, the monthly newsletter for the Coastal Cruising Club of Australia. It's quite a big job, as the average Mainsheet is about 40 pages.


I have also led a few workshops this year, the most recent being a crime-writing workshop at Nowra.  I hope I'll be asked to do some more of these workshops, and I don't mind traveling provided expenses are paid.  Please contact me if you are interested in a workshop for your writing group.  My areas of expertise are:

  • short story writing,
  • sense of place
  • crime writing
  • choosing your narrator.
