I live in northern New South Wales, after over thirty years of living in Western Australia. I’m close to the Border Ranges, which provide a dark, moody and often mist-shrouded backdrop to the view from my place, across green rippling cane fields. I have a PhD and a Masters degree in life writing, and edit and mentor other writers, both academic and creative. I also help other people write their life stories, and I review books here on my blog and for Goodreads. My memoir of childhood, This Place You Know, is to be published by Ginninderra Press in 2019. I have another memoir waiting in the wings, and a third in progress. I am planning an anthology of stories of women whose children were abducted: a subject close to my heart.
