As a Young Adult and Middle Grade Fantasy author I love meeting and speaking with students about all things books and writing. I’m an experienced workshop facilitator and professional speaker with many years’ experience public speaking and working as a trainer (at registered training organisations).

I have run successful workshops for the Queensland Writers Centre and several libraries in the Brisbane and Gold Coast areas.  I have also presented at GenreCon 2019.

I am available for school visits (in person or virtually) and have Teacher and Librarian Resources available. I can also arrange discounts on bulk book orders, facilitate sales on the day or beforehand through an online shop.

Some of the topics I can talk about include:

  • Creating fantastical worlds
  • Writing fantasy
  • Creating awesome characters
  • How to start your story
  • The magic of story beats
  • How to plan a story
  • Top Tips for Writing the Greatest of All Time Story!

    I follow the Australian Society of Authors (ASA) recommended rates, which you can find here.

    A Little Bit About Me

    I’m a speculative fiction author, speaker and content creator based in Brisbane, Australia (Yuggera and Turrbal Country).

    I’m author of The Kyprian Prophecy series and write fantasy and fabulism for young adults and adults. 

    My love of reading and writing started in childhood, leading to a career in journalism, marketing and communication.

    Over the last 25+ years, I have worked across many fields, as a Newspaper Journalist & Editor, Corporate Writer, Business Trainer, and Certified Practising Marketer, in Australia and internationally.

    I hold a Bachelor in Public Relations, Journalism and Media Production, an Advanced Diploma of Management, and a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.
