I am a freelance writer and photographer with a passion for exploring real and imaginary worlds. I write non-fiction and speculative fiction inspired by landscape and our relationship with the environment. Based on Wadandi Boodja in Margaret River, Western Australia, I have extensive experience in the tourism industry and I am passionate about connecting people with country and fostering sense of place.
I think of myself as a writer reading country. I’m always out walking, looking for inspiration in the wild world. I’m lucky to live in a region with a remote and spectacular coastline, and some of the tallest forests on Earth. I love to immerse in the landscape; in the ocean, the forest, and rocks. All have a story to tell if we are open to listening. Feeling it out, learning its ways, and sharing its stories.
I have a Bachelor of Science (hons) in Anthropology from the University of Western Australia (1995). Currently transitioning from a business in heritage-based tourism into freelance writing, and working on a BA in Writing and Publishing at Curtin University.
