I am the author of three memoirs, Beyond Tijuana (Text Publishing, 1995) and The Red Island (Text Publishing, 1997), and You Never Met My Father (Jojo Publishing, 2014).
More recently I have begun to write fiction.
My manuscript, Macaulay Station, won a commendation in the Jim Hamilton Prize, 2016, for an unpublished manuscript, one of the Fellowship of Australian Writers National Literary Awards.
I’m currently writing two more works of fiction.
I have also had articles and short stories published in literary magazines and newspapers, with one of my stories, Out of My Depth, being shortlisted for the Alan Marshall Short Story Award, 2016.
Most of my working life was as an English teacher within the TAFE system, where I taught young adult migrants and refugees. I retired at the end of 2016.
