For ten years she used her communications degree to write for other people. Then (to prove she could) she started writing fiction. Now she works part-time to allow time for the stories in her head.
In 2020 she won the KSP Writers’ Centre ‘Spooky stories’ competition and was a finalist in Writing WA’s ‘Flashing the cover’ competition. She was selected for the Peter Cowan Writing Centre’s emerging writers program in 2021 and came first in the Romance Writers Australia Spicy Bites short story competition in 2023.
