About me

 


I am writer/mum/Lego expert who lives in Point Cook, a 25 minute drive from Melbourne’s CBD (or four times that if it’s peak hour).

The road to writer has been a convoluted one. Prior to three children and an accidental six-year stint in media/advertising, I completed a professional writing course and set about writing bad novels on a laptop I could not afford. There was a nagging problem–I needed to eat. Creative endeavours were put on hold as I went about making money. I lost my way. But writing is an illness, and you can only numb the symptoms for so long before the words begin to decay inside of you. I am now back creating and have also figured out a way to earn an income in the process.

At this point you may be interested in having a snoop through my formal qualifications, so here they are:

Bachelor of Professional Communication – Monash University

Advanced Diploma of Business (Public Relations) – Holmesglen Institute

Diploma of Arts (Professional writing & editing) – Box Hill Institute

Copywriting Essentials – Australian Writers’ Centre
