‘A word after a word after a word is power.’ Margaret Atwood

Words have always been pivotal in my life. From an early age I have crafted stories and anecdotes, and recorded tales and memories. I write creatively about travels, relationships, and the everyday made special because it is observed.

I am also an established copy editor and proofreader, specialising in academic writing (for example, theses, journal articles, book chapters). I have a Master of Philosophy (Creative Writing) from the University of Adelaide, and over 15 years of experience in the industry under the name ‘The Editing Suite’.

If you’d like to read some of my work, head to Publications. If you’re interested in my anthology of true stories about dating during COVID, head to Wear a Mask, Cupid! And if, like me, you’re simply interested in words, then head to my blog ‘Use it in a sentence’, where I take Merriam-Webster’s Word of the Day and create a short piece of fiction.
