Brief Biography

Realising a career as a fashion-footwear buyer did not combine well with two young children, I returned to writing and have been freelancing since 1998.  Originally from New Zealand, I spent eleven years living in Melbourne before moving to Sydney in 1993. 

I enjoy writing on a wide range of subjects for varied audiences and as a photographer can supply images to accompany my articles.  My work has been published (or is scheduled to be published) in magazines, trade publications, newspapers and ezines in Australia, New Zealand, America, England, South Africa, Singapore, Fiji and Papua New Guinea. 

I take pride in producing articles that inform, entertain and inspire and always meet requirements of word count and deadline. I am a member of the Australian Journalists' Association, the Australian Society of Travel Writers, New Zealand Travel Communicators (Travcom), the NSW Writers' Centre and the Society of Women Writers NSW.  

In 2008 I was a finalist in the Australian Society of Travel Writers' Travel Writer of the Year Award in the Australian story under 1,000 words category.
