Biography: Living a life of ‘oh wells’ over a life of ‘what ifs’. Am a writer and researcher of sewerage ghost towns and the connectedness that forms within them and abject communities. I'm awaiting publication of my novel, 'The faraway land of the house and two cows', an undocumented social history of the community once living on Melbourne's first sewerage farm, the Metropolitan Sewerage Farm. I’ve had several short stories published, been short-listed in the Ada Cambridge Writing Prize, won the inaugural Wyndham Rotary Arts Small Business Award and completed a Master of Communication with a thesis on boys and reading and what it is they like to read.
