My work and this site is a place to support other writers do the thing they do best, create stories.

cropped-usqalum_0164-3.jpgAs an avid reader and writer, I believe whole-heartedly in the power of story; there are few forms that can bring together the political, the intellectual, and the emotional so effectively.

If you have a story buried deep inside you, but you don’t know how to start, or if you’re working on a project and have hit a brick wall, the blogs posted on this site and uploaded to my YouTube channel are for you.

Each week I post a blog and video containing advice on writing, publishing, and marketing.

I also love to share my reflections on how to live an artistic life, be more productive, and remain creative fulfilled.

With four degrees in writing and communication under my belt, and a fifth on the way, multiple published articles, stints at regional and metropolitan newspapers, and travel magazines, I have been dedicated to the craft of writing for over ten years.

Following the release of my debut mystery novel, Every Time He Dies, I am now in a position to help others aspiring writers achieve their publishing goals.

If you’d like additional support in achieving your own writing goals, working with a coach may offer the gentle nudge that you’ve been looking for. To find out more, please visit the Work With Me page above.

Stories hold the potential to change lives and minds.

Nothing would bring me more pleasure than to assist you along this path to publication through the blogs, videos, and critique services offered on this site.

Welcome, I am so glad that you’re here.

Every Time He Dies

‘Who knew that a book about murder, grief and disintegrated families could be so funny?’ – Paul WilliamsEverytimeHeDies_3D

‘A unique modern mystery that is one part psychic practices and one part police procedural. The fast pace, dynamic characters and intricate plot will keep readers hooked until the end.’ – Gregory James

‘It’s rare to find an Australian-set book of this scope and genre that could stand among its international peers and hold its own, but I won’t be surprised to see this book find its success in all corners of the crime genre reading world.’ – Shayla Morgansen

‘Can someone please make this into a TV series? This is a fabulous read and I want to see Liam and Daff on the small screen.’ – Carol Seeley

Every Time He Dies is about a woman who finds a watch that is the same design as her deceased boyfriend’s only it is haunted by a ghost with amnesia. While trying to uncover the ghost’s identity, she becomes involved in her estranged father’s homicide investigation.
