|Location||Sydney, NSW, Australia|
I grew up in a small town and after many years travelling, now live in Sydney. I work in television and have made short films which have screened internationally. I have had many stories and poems published, all over the world.
My first book was the novella, Bottomless River (2012), the second, a poetry collection Caged Without Walls (2013) both through Ginninderra Press.
My seven (as yet unpublished) novels in reverse order.
I, Narcissist: The self obsessed in extremes.
Tru Luv Kills: When two teens fall in love, the outcome is murder.
Ode to Dead Young Friends: A Memoir of four young people whose time came too soon.
R.I.P. Rest In Prime: An aging population has placed a burden on society. There's only one solution.
Oblivion City and Oblivion Terminus: Is it the end of civilization? A young adult dystopian nightmare.
Borders of Bordavia: A children's fantasy. Think Junior Lord of the Rings.

|Favorite Books||Thomas Hardy is up there, beautiful prose.. also Nabokov, Wilde, Bukowski, Burgess, Kerouac - modern, Paul Auster & Alex Miller... literary works, rather than mainstream - something about humanity... or the lack of it. Have educated myself on the literary classics.. I like Tolstoy & Dostoevsky.. but not Joyce. Each to their own.|
