I am happy to work with other creatives in collaborations. Writing, editing, publishing, or podcasts. I have already contributed to an anthology by Women About Women - Weaving Words; have been interviewed on a few podcasts, and have interviewed authors as well. I'm happy to discuss book publishing, writing, and collaborations with you. If you're interested in working with me, send me a message via my contact form below.

My career is in using words to communicate. As a freelance writer, I have written and edited PR, ads, corporate communications, and newsletters. For products from food to jewellery, fashion, and interiors as well as garden and building products. When I'm not writing corporate communications or as a Senior Reviewer for the online site, Weekend Notes, I work on my self-published fiction books.

My first published story, The Studio is a short crime story. Xenure Station: A Billion Light Years is my second short story. Both are available as eBooks wherever books are sold online.


The Decision They Made, my debut novel, and my other books are available on my website –


Weaving Words, an anthology I collaborated on, is also available as an audiobook. I contributed two short stories to this anthology along with eight other authors. I am open to collaborations with fellow authors and artists. You can follow me on X, Instagram, Threads, and Facebook.


As mentioned, I am happy to collaborate with other creatives -  writing, editing, publishing, or podcasts. I have been interviewed on a few podcasts and have interviewed authors as well. I'm happy to discuss book publishing, writing, and collaborations with you.


Recently, with other authors, I set up Sydney Authors Inked, a collective of self-published authors who do free book talks in Sydney. We discuss books, reading, publishing, and all book-related topics. We have introduced an interview format where Sydney Authors Inked is in conversation with an author, traditional or self-published. We have authors interested in being interviewed. These talks are currently held at The Little Big House, Summer Hill, a beautiful space where events like ours are held regularly. Anyone is welcome to attend, look out for tickets on Humanitix.
