About

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

Here you’ll find links to my books, and reviews of a couple of my books, as well as links to a few poems that you can read online.

Here is a bit about me:

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 have 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, DIAGRAM, the Los Angeles Review, and World Literature Today (USA), and Event, Geist, and the Malahat Review (Canada).

Born and (mostly) raised in Australia, I lived in Canada for ten years, then Mexico for ten more, with various stays in the USA in between. Right now I’m in Brisbane, Australia.

The themes I return to most often in my writing include alcoholism and addiction, trauma, shame, memory, love and limerence, performance and identity, and place. 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. 

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