About Me

I grew up near Boston, studied at New York University and Oxford, and presently live in Sydney with my husband and our 5 sons. I write both poetry and fiction, and have received development grants in each from the Australia Council for the Arts. I also edit WordMothers, showcasing women’s work in the literary arts worldwide.

I am currently pursuing publication for my poetry collection, Girls on Land, and seeking representation for The Accident, a novel about the brain injury my father sustained during my childhood.
