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, published short stories, poems and articles, and worked full-time as a university lecturer, all the time trying to find time to write amongst the hectic-ness of everyday life. I developed the Small Steps method to help my undergraduate students with time management skills, and to help myself carve out some writing time. Now I share productivity tips on the Small Steps blog. As I’ve done some Drama teaching in my time, I have also written a series of Drama lesson plans for busy teachers. I left my full-time job in June 17 to spend more time writing. On this blog I try to record the process of writing, including the challenges, distractions and moments of epiphany.
