My short story Frangipani is going to be published by Headland Literary Journal. I drew upon my own past experience as a cleaner for the story, which has itself now had a spit and polish from the amazing Headland copy editor. i'm so excited I might actually cast off my Dutch / Presbyterian miserliness and shout myself a nice dinner when it comes out.
My short fiction has been published in Headland, Hue and Cry, Pot Roast and Aerodrome. I'm an award-winning playwright and zine creator, and my play Indiscretions was published by Playmarket. I have contributed articles and creative non-fiction to The Spinoff, The Sunday Star Times, The NZ Herald and more. I also manage the social media for my cat Bruce, and I wrote and illustrated a children's book, Bruce Finds A Home, based on his exploits.
