Last week Natasha Lester kindly invited me to take part in a blog hop on writing processes. Natasha is the author of two brilliant works of fiction – What is Left Over, After and If I Should Lose You – and teaches writing at UWA Extension and the new Writers Centre which has recently opened […]
Wherever you live, over the next few days you have the opportunity to make your voice heard about the shark baiting that’s happening in my little corner of the world. Colin Barnett, the WA Premier, has been quoted in the last 48 hours as saying he believes the silent majority are for the cull. If […]
Last year, a succession of stars aligned. I met a warm and enthusiastic author and reviewer, Susan May, who had kindly attended one of my speaking events. As we began chatting it became clear we were both very interested in the changing nature of the industry, and a friendship blossomed. When I mentioned my admiration […]
It’s the Australia Day blog hop! Last year I wrote a piece for Random House on what Australia Day had come to mean to me. However, this year, I feel increasingly unsettled about where Australia is heading. I’m referring to the plans for coal mining/dredging/dumping around the World Heritage Great Barrier Reef, and small communities […]

I entered at the middle level – Miles – which […]

This month the Writers Ask Writers group has tackled perhaps our most challenging question yet: Why do we write? One of my earliest attempts at ‘writing’ was an epic poem entitled ‘Susie and the Green Washing Machine’. I’m pretty sure I wrote it for the hell of it, because I felt like it, and I […]
I have been a bit quiet lately, and it’s not just that I have been busy writing my new book. We welcomed our second daughter into the world just over two weeks ago, and I am a very proud and busy mum at the moment. I plan to spend the next few months focusing primarily […]
Fiction writing is all about inhabiting other lives for a period of time, so for this month’s Writers Ask Writers we’ve put a twist on this concept to ask ourselves the question: If you could jump into the life of another author, past or present, for one day, who would it be and why? Joining […]
