Winner of the Tom Fitzgibbon Award 2005
For a long time I was a teacher who wrote- now I am a writer who teaches- the two roles keep getting tangled.
I write for young people as well as short fiction and poetry.
I have a Master in Creative Writing with distinction from Massey University.
In 2021 I was the Otago University College of Education/ Creative New Zealand Writer in Residence. INTERVIEW
When I'm not writing in my studio at the top of a spiral staircase I can be found as the Director and a tutor with Write On School for Young Writers in Christchurch, New Zealand.
I am available to speak to school groups, teachers, writers and also run writing workshops.
