About me

I grew up near Boston, studied at the Gallatin School of Individualized Study at New York University and Wadham College, Oxford University, and presently live in Sydney with my husband and our 5 little boys.

I write both poetry and fiction, and have been awarded development grants in each from the Australia Council for the Arts. I also edit WordMothers, showcasing women’s work in the literary arts worldwide.

My favorite book is Superfudge by Judy Blume, I collect autoimmune diseases, and I am never without white Tic Tacs or a tape measure.

  1. Five little boys! Wow . . . I had three (many years ago) and that seemed to be quite a handful.
    Very happy to have connected and look forward to speaking soon. Just fyi, I am originally British and worked in book publishing in London before emigrating to Australia in 1990.
    V impressed with all that you are involved in.

    • Hi Jennie, yes, it’s all action around here! But we do love our books, too. 🙂 Thanks for visiting and sharing more about your background. I can’t wait to feature you on WordMothers and hear about your work at Room to Read!
