About me

Page

I am an Australian author living for the last decade in Austria. I have over two dozen short story publications, some in Australia’s leading children’s literary publication—The School Magazine. Occasionally I write non-fiction. My most recent article (On Mountain Time) was published (March 2017) in Metropole Magazine. One of my more recent short stories, “Night of the Sand People”, was accepted in June 2017 by The School Magazine for publication.  Another short story, “Shadow Town” was accepted in November 2017 by Scoop Magazine (UK) for publication. Many more short stories and writing projects are in the pipeline. Like many writers, my regular creative writing practice comes to fruition in a myriad of forms.

As a creative writing coach I enjoy helping people experience for themselves why creative writing is sunshine for the imagination!

Why Creative Writing on the Go?

Creative Writing on the Go was born out of necessity: When I started writing in earnest in my mid-30s, I already had a career, a family, and of course, little time for writing. The more I wrote and became published the greater my desire to take things to the next level. To do so, I realised I had to overcome all sorts of obstacles and preconceptions about writing. I developed effective ways of using time and place to tap into my creative energy and write myself right out of the proverbial box!

Such is the spirit of Creative Writing on the Go—to overcome every writing challenge and perceived obstacle using one’s creative energy, a good deal of mindfulness, and sheer determination!

By joining me in a writing workshop—whether you’re young or old, new to writing or experienced—you will take your writing to the next level!
