I was born and raised in Perth, Western Australia, and studied creative writing and history at the University of Western Australia. I completed the Literary Novels MA at City University London in 2017, graduating with distinction.
Where the Line Breaks was one of three novels shortlisted for the inaugural $20,000 Fogarty Literary Award 2019, and was previously long-listed for the 2018 Kill Your Darlings Unpublished Manuscript Award (as Behind the Lines). I have also had short stories and poetry published in dotdotdash, Trove, Voiceworks, Aurealis, Control Literary Magazine and Every Day Fiction.
Recently, my short story ‘Green Thumbs’ was Highly Commended in the Writers Forum Short Story Competition (Issue 227). My short story ‘Apocalypse‘ was Highly Commended by the judges for the Manchester Fiction Prize 2018. My short Story ‘Poetic Justice‘ was nominated for a WA Science Fiction Achievement Award at SwanCon 36: The 36th Annual Western Australian Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention and was the winner of the Editors Choice Award in Trove.
