A new lease of life for my books

As you know, I was bitterly disappointed when Satalyte shut up shop as it might have meant the end of my admittedly short career as a publi...

About Me

My photo
I am a writer, editor, reviewer and dance teacher based in Perth, Western Australia.

My books

The first two novels of my trilogy, The Talismans, are available as e-books from Smashwords. 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. 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. I hope to see my books back on Amazon under a new publisher in the near future.

Still busy, and busier yet!

I'm on the second round of edits for The Dagger of Dresnia and guess what? I got a sneak peak at a possible cover yesterday! It's looking great and I can't wait to see the finished version.

Coverage of the Perth Writers Festival for Artshub went well. With my colleague Ilsa Sharp, I attended the three day event to hear such amazing writers as Lionel Shriver and Martin Amis. Here's our report on talks by these two guests of honour:

Our day one report is at

And you can find day two at

And here's day three

I reviewed several lovely shows in February, too. The wonderful Ballet at the Quarry is an annual event I always look forward to. You can read about this year's effort at

I also went with friends to hear a wonderful concert by the river with Perth Symphony Orchestra, but I didn't review that one. Aren't I lucky to live in a climate where outdoor shows can be mounted for at least six months of the year?

Another amazing dance show was the Batsheva Company from Israel:

Then last week I went to hear the ever-popular Chamber Jam, a monthly show at the Ellington Jazz club that I always enjoy:

That's all on the reviewing front - I pulled my horns in with this year's festival and fringe because I knew I would be busy with the edits. But there's more busy-ness: I'm now teaching two theatrical dance classes a week at the Trinity School for Seniors in Perth. And I do want to keep up my own fitness by doing at least one circuit class and one one belly dance class each week, otherwise I won't be fit enough to teach!

That's enough waffle - I'd better get back to the editing! I'm only a third of the way through the second pass and my deadline is in a fortnight.  I'll let you know when I arrive at the finish line, panting and puffing!
