ABOUT

I am a writer, mum and general practitioner from Melbourne, Australia. I have been published in print and online. My writing has appeared in Meanjin, Overland, Griffith REVIEW, Sleepers Almanac, The Bridport Prize Anthology, Lascaux Review, Visible Ink, Peril, The Victorian Writer and SeizureMy short story collection, Australia Day, won the 2016 Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for Unpublished Manuscript.

If Saul Bellow is right and “a writer is a reader moved to emulation” then I am moved by authors like Richard Yates, Alice Munro, Junot Diaz, Haruki Murakami and Christos Tsoilkas.
