I am a mature aged student at the University of the Sunshine Coast. I have completed my Bachelor of Creative Writing and now undertaking a Mater of Professional Practice Creative Writing. An activist for Sentient Rights, and a Dementia Advocate in addition to being a writer.  I share my life with my wonderful partner, our four-legged fur babies Hugo Boss and  Tashi -la and once we were the proud owners of a second-hand book. This blog is dedicated to my wonderful Dad who passed away earlier this year – the man who told me, I could be anything I wanted to be.

I live in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, where  I am surrounded by the incredible beauty of the Glass House Mountains. Unfortunately, progress has come to our town and we are losing the unique beauty of the area.

I find strength in the mountains and they  provide inspiration for my poetry.  I hope you enjoy my work and please share your comments.
