Dr Alex Vickery-Howe, Dr Sean Williams and I launched a new writing podcast this year. Word Docs – possibly the best and worst name ever for a writing podcast. You can find us on Apple, Spotify, Stitcher, or wherever you get your podcasts.

2019 was spent writing and editing Bound for Glorywhich is in stores now.


While I’ve had lots of short fiction published this year, 2018 has essentially been the Year of the Cowboy. Check out my alter-ego Tess’s ‘Frontiers of the Heart’ series. It’s rollicking and raunchy and a hell of a ride.

Very proud to be a co-editor of and contributor to Crush: stories about love. The collection was inspired by the 2016 Romance Writers of Australia ‘Ain’t Love Grand’ conference and the Flinders University Speakeasy connected readings night. I had the enormous pleasure of working with two of my ex-Honours students, Jess and Simone, and the wonderful Lynette and Anna from Midnight Sun.
