I’m a copywriter, author and writing coach, helping people in both business and creative writing with judgement-free, honest and practical advice.
Life changing brochure
My writing journey began in 1994 when I was handed a brochure for Holmesglen TAFE that listed the Diploma of Arts – Professional Writing and Editing.
As soon as I read that title, my whole body resonated. They had courses where you could learn to be a professional writer? I had no idea they existed…I decided then and there to throw in my corporate job and do the course. Fast forward 25+ years and here I am, a copywriter, published author and writing coach.
Writing is my happy place
As an author, I write for adults as well as children, and have been shortlisted for a number of fiction and non-fiction awards, including the Victorian Community History Awards. My work has been on The Age best-sellers list and my most recent title, Zelda’s Big Adventure – a book about a chook who wants to be an astronaut – was a ‘Notable’ picture book in the CBCA Awards. The day Zelda was read on Playschool by the wonderful Leigh Sales, is one of my proudest (and most surreal) moments.
I teach writing across a range of genres, review children’s books and co-run a manuscript assessment service, Bedlam Books.
My current work in progress is a humorous, feminist, crime space opera.
