 I am the author of A Wife's Heart (2017), an auto / biography of Henry Lawson's wife, Bertha Lawson and single parenting. My areas of research are auto / biography; literary journalism / creative non-fiction; Multiplatform media and social media. 

I have appeared at the Sydney Writers' Festival 2017; the Brisbane Writers Festival and the National Folk Festival.

My teaching and research is underpinned by a decade's professional practice in national media publications including the Weekend Australian and Vogue Australia.
