Thanks for visiting my webpage. I hope you find something interesting. On this site, I aim to publish my works, as well as to write and collect articles I find on the internet that I hope will assist myself and other authors to improve their writing, edit, learn how to self-publish and market their works. I will also include articles on how to research and the therapeutic benefits of creative writing.
I am a librarian, author, editor, presenter, history buff and animal lover. I have been addicted to reading since I was 12 when I picked up a copy of “Jane Eyre” at my aunty’s place. This led me to “Wuthering Heights” and “Pride and Prejudice” and then I discovered Georgette Heyer’s books and I was hooked. I haven’t stopped reading ever since. My passion for books led directly to my career choice. I thought that since I already spent so much time in the library, I might as well make a living there. It’s a choice I have never regretted. My job allows me to help people and I’m always learning new things: a perfect fit for me. I also love to write, both fiction and non-fiction, and I will be making these works available on this website. I also enjoy presenting papers at conferences and have had some articles published in professional journals.
I have recently completed a novel called Until the Rivers Run Still, a tragic love story set in Sydney of the 1950’s.
I hope you enjoy my stories and the photos which were taken by, and reproduced with permission from, Damien Silson. Contact me if you would like to view more and/or purchase copies of his excellent photography.
