I’m a writer of fiction and creative nonfiction, and a contributing editor at both Dead Housekeeping and YeahWrite.

If you’re a regular visitor, you’ll notice some changes around here. I’ve consolidated blogs that were running in different places, and set them up as separate pages here. Have a look around!

Parenting In The Wilderness contains nonfiction, personal writing. It’s where I blog about mothering my (now) teenaged children as we traverse countries, encounter various trials, and celebrate joyous moments too.

You’ll also find a smattering of other topical issues, including racism, anti-blackness (especially within migrant and PoC* communities), and intersectional feminism.

FlAsha Tales is where you’ll find my flash fiction, poetry, prose, and excerpts from works in progress.

When I’m not writing you’ll find me walking my small round dog, taking photographs, or wrangling the children.

You can find more of my work at Modern LossPANKIt Starts With Hope, and Dead Housekeeping.

*PoC communities — refers to communities of people of colour. Although PoC isn’t commonly used within Australia, there is a growing move to use that term (along with WoC to refer to women of colour).
