This is the best kind of memoir. There is a beautiful calm clarity that drew me in and held me until the end. Georgia Blain

HELLO, AND WELCOME

Thanks for visiting my website.

You can find out about my book, Reaching One Thousand, read some reviews of my work or visit my news page. Please feel free to email me via the contact page as well.

As well as being a writer, I am a Lecturer in Professional Writing and Publishing at Curtin University, Western Australia. I love my work because it combines my passions for writing and for education. Before working at Curtin, I worked in book publishing, government policy, as a consultant researcher and editor and in adult community education.

My first book, Reaching One Thousand: a story of love, motherhood and autism, was published by Black Inc. in March 2012. It is a memoir about the experience of mothering my son, who is autistic, and what I learned from him. The book is still available in print and as an ebook in various formats.
