About Me

I grew up near Boston, studied at New York University and Oxford, and after 18 years in Sydney, now live in Brisbane with my husband and our 5 sons. A recipient of Australia Council grants in both poetry and fiction, I also write essays about feminism, disability, and parenting.

I am the founding editor of WordMothers, supporting women’s work in the literary arts. I have a professional background in e-learning and instructional design, and enjoy conducting poetry presentations and workshops in schools, as well as helping other writers hone their craft.
