I am thrilled to finally be allowed to announce that this year I have been lucky enough to have been named one of the two EMERGING WRITERS in RESIDENCE at Katharine Susannah Pritchard Writers Centre outside Perth in 2018!! YAY! YAY!! SUPER YAY!

I’ve applied every year for almost ten years and been shortlisted three times. Never give up people!

So happy to be able to sit and walk and write where this strong political woman who suffered great personal tragedy and wrote so wonderfully and deeply once lived. Thank you Katharine! Thank you KSP Writers Centre! And thank you previous me for not giving up.

See you in June July next year Western Australians!

red-wine-blue-cheeseRecently I won third prize in the Odyssey House short story competition with my short story Red Wine Blue Cheese. YAY!

Never give up on a story. I’d been working on this one and sending it out over and over again since 2005. At last it’s found a good home and you can read it – HERE

It’s set in Singapore and loosely based on the time I spent there in the mid-nineties, just before I escaped to the chaotic freedom and wildness of Cambodia. Let me know what you think. Hope you like it 🙂
