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
