About

Storie my nonni told. Tales of ghosts, love and war. Truths in gullies, mass graves and empty stomachs. They are as much my history as the Anglo narrative I learnt as Aussie school.

I am a writer and academic with experience in print marketing, PR, websites and social media for not-for-profits engaging in best practice and ground-breaking study in Melbourne and London.

My short and long storie have won awards including the Boroondarah Literary Prize and support from the Australian Council for the Arts. Some of my blog posts appear on Meanjin and Overland.

I now read and write as part of a scholarship (creative-writing) at Victoria University.
