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.

Perth Writers Festival, 2016


It took three of us to write up the Perth Writers Festival for Artshub this year! Even so, we really couldn't cover all of it. It was busy, busy, busy, busy, with four streams running at once.

Check out the links below if you want a taste of writerly wisdom from some of the world's finest:

The Opening Address (Thursday 18 February) was covered by Michèle Drouart

Day One (Friday, 19 February) was covered by Satima (writing as Carol Flavell Neist) and Michèle Drouart 


Day Two (Saturday 20 February) was covered by Ilsa Sharp

Day Three (Sunday 21 February) was covered by Satima
(writing as Carol Flavell Neist)


The Perth Writers Festival is incredibly popular. It attracts readers, writers, and purveyors of fine books by the gazillion. All right, all right - a few hundred of each, maybe fewer of the purveyors - but there could easily have been a couple of thousand people and more passing through the gates over the three days. This year's theme was 'Empathy' - something we could all try to develop to the advantage of everyone.

PS - the Writing WA Newsletter reckons the total head count to be around 47,000!
