I was born and raised in Melbourne and love getting my feet dirty in other countries. I have moved to Edinburgh, Scotland, with my partner and we are hoping to see more of Europe while we live here. I can’t stand the taste of coffee, but I do enjoy coffee-flavoured cake. Also many types of tea, hot chocolate, and chai lattes.
I’m a librarian and I love what I do. In Melbourne I worked at an academic library and a public library simultaneously, getting the best of both worlds. Surrounded by books and learning all day – living the dream.
I could talk all day about Jane Austen, the Brontes’, Harry Potter, Roald Dahl’s children’s books, European and Australian history, and World War Two narratives.
I can also talk at length about Australian politics, feminism and intersectionality, and religion vs. faith, though engage me with the knowledge that I get passionate about my ideas.
I have written for Theatrepeople, Express Media (Buzzcuts and Voiceworks), SYN Media, the Jane Austen Literacy Foundation and Reader’s Digest Australia. I have also written several manuscripts in various stages of the editing process. Talk to me. I like people.
(I also like lists, as you may have discerned).
