I’m an Australian writer of novels, short fiction and poems for readers of all ages.

Coming soon: Goddess, a novel for adults based on the life of the remarkable French opera star and swordswoman, Julie d’Aubigny. It’s due to be published by Fourth Estate in June 2014. Read more about the book, La Maupin, and the research here.

My latest book is a novel for young adults,  The Sultan’s Eyes, the sequel to Act of Faith.

I’m also a journalist and editor who has worked on newspapers, magazine and websites. You can read some of my travel writing, feature articles and poems.

There are tips and resources for aspiring writers, and updates on my academic research.
