I’m an author and playwright based in Canberra, Australia. Although I’ve written in
some capacity all my life, I’ve only recently focused on creative writing as a serious pursuit. I particularly enjoy writing fiction for children and young adults, and I’m thrilled that my first children’s picture book, The Trouble in Tune Town, is now available. I’ve just completed my young adult novel, Freefalling, which I’m hoping will be published in late 2018 or early 2019. My plays have been performed in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney. In addition to my creative writing achievements, I have worked as an ethicist, medical writer/producer, small business owner, freelance journalist and editor of Australian Medicine. I have a bachelor’s degree, master’s degree and doctorate, each in philosophy.
