Read, Write, Dance

Read, Write, Dance . Those three words could almost be my epitaph. Certainly (bearing and rearing children aside) they are the three activi...

About Me

My photo
I am a writer, editor, reviewer and dance teacher based in Perth, Western Australia. I trained in piano and singing at the NSW Conservatorium of Music. I also trained in dance (Scully-Borovansky, WAAPA) and drama (NIDA). Since 1987 I have been writing reviews of performances in all genres for a variety of publications, including Music Maker, ArtsWest, Dance Australia, The Australian and others. Now semi-retired, I still write occasionally for the ArtsHub website, and I still teach dance at Trinity School for Seniors, an outreach program of the Uniting Church in Perth. You might enjoy my books - The Dagger of Dresnia, the first book of the Talismans Trilogy, is available at all good online book shops. Book two, The Cloak of Challiver, will be available again shortly. Book three, The Seer of Syland, is in preparation.

My books

The first novel of my trilogy, The Talismans, is available as an e-book from Smashwords, Amazon and other online sellers. I do have paperbacks of The Dagger of Dresnia at the low price of $AU25 including postage within Australia. I also have a short story, 'La Belle Dame', in print - see Mythic Resonance below. Book two of the trilogy, The Cloak of Challiver, will be available again shortly. The best way to contact me is via Facebook!

Buy The Talismans

The first two books of The Talismans trilogy were published by Satalyte Publications, which, sadly, has gone out of business. Book one, The Dagger of Dresnia, is up on the usual bookselling web sites as an e-book, and I have a few hard copies to sell to those who prefer Real Paper. Book Two, The Cloak of Challiver, will be available soon. The easiest way to contact me is via Facebook.

New blog up and running!

I've just been away on another writers retreat, this time with four friends from the Katharine Susannah Prichard Writers Centre. The Trilogy and I had a good time, even if The Trilogy was being badly behaved and wouldn't go where I wanted it to:-)

Now I must needs prepare to return to South Australia on Thursday next, where The Trilogy and I will continue our ongoing struggle. The Trilogy, you see, does not want to be forced into three books. It would much rather be four books, or even five, and it's not allowed to be more than three. The struggle continues.

But on another front, I'm really excited! With four writerly friends - Carol Ryles, Helen Venn, Joanna Fay and Sarah Parker - I have started still another blog! It's called Egoboo and I've just put up my first post, about how I got started in writing. Check it out at

Satima;

I understand about anonymous comments because I have the same problem. My blog seems to have been hijacked these past few weeks by people starting their comment with "sorry to be off topic, guys ..."

My Die in Paris also refuses to be restricted to the pages of a book. It prefers to roam about my apartment and here on the Web.

Yes, I've been getting those as well, together with some Viagra ones:-)

It's quite shameful the way books and characters try to run ourlives, isn't it? still, we'd be miserable without them!
