Bio

If you like quirky, funny, spooky or downright terrifying Black-Mirror-style stories then you've come to the right place.

 

I have won or been placed in various competitions both nationally (broadcast on Radio New Zealand as a winner of their Short Story competition, shortlisted for the Graeme Lay Short Story competition, twice featured in the monthly Flash Frontier and on the poster for Dunedin's MicroFlash event) and internationally, including being shortlisted for the Bridport Prize for short stories and flash fiction, a Silver Award from Writers of the Future, featured in the Lifespan book 'Older' and various online publications.

 

Spring Clean at the Pool was one of five winners of the inaugural Radio New Zealand short story competition. It was produced for radio and broadcast in 2021 Listen to it here

If you love flash fiction too then you could subscribe to have an original, entertaining piece of flash fiction to read on your coffee break delivered to your inbox once a week. Would you be keen on that? See Flash for Cash

I write novels also. I have written a mystery thriller and am halfway through a supernatural thriller (see Work). I have a collection of comical memoirs. I am seeking an agent or publisher, so watch this space.

After a long stint living in Europe, I came back to live on Stewart Island in the deep south of New Zealand for twenty years and now, along with my husband and teen, call Dunedin home.
