I spend much of my time writing, reading, book reviewing and taking an interest in other writers, both well-known and not so well known. I’m a member of Ballarat Writers Inc. Writers Victoria and the Australian Society of Authors. 

In 2018 I published my debut novel, Finding Eliza. A historical fiction story set in Country Victoria, Melbourne and China. I’m currently working on a stand alone sequel to Finding Eliza.

I’m a retired family therapist and counsellor by profession and have worked for over three decades with families and individuals.  I respect and love hearing stories about people’s lives and believe that our stories tell us who we are, and provide a pathway for greater understanding, eventually. 

This blog is about people, life issues, books and writing.

    I have just finished reading your book “Finding Eliza”. I got swept along with the story, the twists and turns and surprises Well done. I look forward to your book about the drownings of the Byrne girls.


    • Thanks for your comments, Marg, appreciate them. I have been thinking about writing the drowning story for many years. It was indeed a tragic event in the lives of the Bryne family in the 1800’s. I will continue thinking…
