Hello …

Welcome to my website and thanks for visiting!

Check out my children’s novels, book reviews, blogs, poetry and more. Head straight to the kid’s section if you’re looking for background on Dog Gone and In the Dark. You’ll find writing tips there, too.

My short story ‘All the Light’ is now up on the Meanjin blog.

Also — great news. In the Dark is out! And a brand-new version of Dog Gone is too. Huge thanks to Kathryn Duncan at Celapene Press.  In the Dark  had its first launch at the Melbourne Writers Festival as part of the  Hot off the (Small) Press event. Check out my pitch.

The  double launch for In the Dark and the re-issued Dog Gone in December was a hoot. The event was hosted by Eastern Regional Libraries and Celapene Press with Euan Mitchell doing the launch.



Both books are available  in any good bookshop. Or your local library.

Hear children’s author Kesta Fleming read the first chapter of Dog Gone and be in the running to win a copy! Simply leave a comment on her  Story Corner webpage about why you would like to read the rest of the book. Competition closes August 24.

And stay tuned for Kesta to tempt you with In the Dark!
