Welcome to my blog.

Born in Burma, I migrated to Perth over thirty years ago, and completed my Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of Western Australia. I moved to Canberra in 1971, and married Colin.

I obtained my Diploma in Education at the University of New England and taught at high schools for over a quarter of a century. My time is devoted to writing, reading, gardening, bushwalking, and attending classical opera. Colin gives me every encouragement in my writing.

My story Hunger, an excerpt from my memoir See No Evil: story of a war child, was short-listed for the 2013 Redlitzer Writing Competition and published in the 2013 Redlitzer Anthology and two of my short stories, The Seasons of Life and A Year in India, in the Carindale Writers’ Group Seasons’ Anthology.

In 2014, I won the Narrative Hook Competition by Omega Writers, and was Longlisted for the Australia-wide Grieve Writing Competition and the Lane Cove Literary Award.

  1. I feel I know you a little better having read this page. We have more than writing and gardening in common it seems. I have only just recently ceased to teach. And of course I love reading and being out in the bush.
    I am impressed by your writing accomplishments and intend to read some excerpts from your book next.
    Have you thought of inserting a ‘follow’ button on your site? It would make it easier for visitors to keep up with your posts.
