HELLO, AND WELCOME
NATIONAL BIOGRAPHY AWARD SHORTLISTING – Reaching One Thousand was among the five shortlisted books for this year’s Award.
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 out now in print and as an ebook in various formats.
