About

Hello, and thank you for stopping by my writing website.

I’m the author of the poetry books Anchorage (Haverthorn Press, UK, 2020), glass (Five Islands Press, 2017), You As Poetry (Texture Press, USA, 2013), [four paths] (Texture Press, 2012), and to the river (Artistically Declined Press, USA, 2010), as well as the chapbooks descansos (dancing girl press, USA, 2015), and fish and feathers (dancing girl press, 2017). 

I’ve been published widely in literary journals and magazines in Australia, the USA, and Canada, including the Australian Poetry Journal (& anthologies), Cordite, the Griffith Review, Island, Overland, Southerly, and Westerly (AUS); The Bennington Review, Prelude, DIAGRAM, Lana Turner, the Los Angeles Review, and World Literature Today (USA), and Event, Geist, and the Malahat Review (Canada), and in 2020 I was awarded a grant from the Australia Council for the Arts to support the writing of my next book, about intimate partner violence. 

Born in Armidale, Australia, and raised all over the place, I went on to live in Canada for ten years, then Mexico for almost ten more, with many other travels in between. Right now I’m in Brisbane (Australia).

According to Google there are three Brisbanes in the USA. One is a ghost town. So I’m not in any of those Brisbanes right now, but I might like to visit them someday.

I also work as an editor/copyeditor, and offer poetry classes and mentoring.
