As an historical novelist, I spend many months researching each project.
You can find out what I’m working on right now under Work in progress.
My PhD project, currently underway at La Trobe University, is Tragédie, a novel based on the life of the remarkable Mademoiselle de Maupin and a thesis around questions of narrative voice in historical fiction.
My Masters thesis was Poetry, Politics and Place: Black and White Perspectives on Landscape in Modern Australian Poetry.
It is published in full on Poetry, Politics and Place.
You can read the abstract here.
My published community sector research includes:
- Dollars and Sense, co-authored with Michele O’Neil, Youth Accommodation Coalition of Victoria, 1991
- Do You Come Here Often: Youth Homelessness in Australia, National Youth Coalition for Housing, 1990
- What Are Nice Girls Like You Doing In A Place Like This? Young Women and Housing Services in Australia, National Youth Coalition for Housing, 1987
- Your Dream, Our Nightmare, National Youth Coalition for Housing, 1989.
