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 has been included in Waymaking – a new anthology of women’s adventure writing, poetry and art – the book is £17.99 and available from Vertebrate Publishing. I will have some copies for sale at events through the Autumn as well.


The book smashed it’s kickstarter goals and as well as yours truly it features contributions from award winning author Bernadette McDonald, world leading climber Hazel Findlay and adventurers Sarah Outen, Solana Joy 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 novella 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.


October 2018.
