I completed a Masters of Fine Arts in Writing in the U.S. on a Fulbright and full tuition scholarship. My first novel, Who We Were, was shortlisted for the ACT Book of the Year Award. It was written with the support of a Varuna New Writers’ Fellowship and an Australian Society of Authors Mentorship. My second novel, Believe in Me, was published by UQP in August, 2021. I teach creative writing at the Australian National University.
