Summary

Born and bred in Perth, Western Australia, one of my earliest memories was of visiting a bookshop on windy St Georges Terrace, lined with timber bookcases all the way to the ceiling and a spiral staircase leading up to a balcony spanning its circumference. Another memory is sneaking out of the kid's section in the library to drool over the pictures in National Geographic, a magazine I would later be published in.
You could say that words have played a very big part in my life and I consider myself extremely fortunate to write for a living.

Biography

I started my writing career as a travel writer combining my passion for travel with writing. I'm widely published in local, national and international magazines and newspapers including The Australian, National Geographic Traveller, BBC, CNNGo, Luxury Travel, Menu Magazine, RAC Horizons, Forbes and Have A Go News, to name a few. I also run the Fluffy Towel travel blog - for those who love their discoveries as much as their fluffy towels.
I'm the author/co-author/co-producer of seven books (plus a contributor to several travel books) three of which have won IPPY awards in the Independent Book Publishers Awards in New York City. These titles include: 'Australia's Extra.Ordinary. West,' 'The Artists of Margaret River' and Permanent Impressions: a salute to contemporary heroines.
I'm also a copywriter and communications professional specialising in the lifestyle, hospitality, tourism, not-for-profits, the arts and real estate industries.

Recent experience

I have a couple of book projects in the pipeline (too early to share the details) and I currently have several copywriting clients including an artist, several real estate agents, a not-for-profit social housing provider and I freelance to several magazines.
