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 Seizure. My short story collection, Australia Day, won the 2016 Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for Unpublished Manuscript.
Australia Day will be published by Text in July 2017. You can order copies here
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 Tsiolkas.
