Before I was a traveller, before I was a mother, I was a writer.
Thanks for visiting. I am an Edinburgh based Australian, powered by caffeine.
I am learning to say: ‘I am a writer.’
When I say it, people ask: ‘What do you write about?’
My answer at the moment is that a story I wrote about wild swimming in Turkey is being published in Waymaking – a new anthology of women’s adventure writing, poetry and art being published by Vertebrate Publishing in October 2018.
The book is currently available for pre-order via kickstarter until the 10th of May and will be published in October. As well as yours truly it features contributions from award winning author Bernadette |McDonald, world leading climber Hazel Findlay and adventurers Sarah Outen and Anna McNuff.
You can read all about a flamingo adventure I had in Turkey right now on the blog if you like!
I also write about travel with babies, but I am trying to get back to doing some more fiction.
If people seem interested in that I might tell them about You Won’t Remember This- travel with babies, the book I created with some amazing collaborators. If they are still listening I might tell them how I am learning about indie-publishing, book marketing, and that I have a work in progress set in Jordan which is not about babies at all.
If you are still reading and you want to know more, please have a look around the website, read a blog or two and if you like any content feel free to share it, get in touch, or write about it in your diary.
