About me

Welcome to my website. I published two novels with Headline Review: The Water’s Edge (2003) and The Haven Home for Delinquent Girls (2004). Then I travelled for a while, wrote a PhD, started a family, worked full-time as a university lecturer, and published short stories, poems and articles, and a non-fiction book.
