I am a Brisbane based writer, passionate about stories with Southeast Asian focus. I particularly love books by writers that explore the complexities of culture and growing up as a minority in a Western country, as well as historical fiction.
My previous experience includes working for nearly a decade as a political advisor and subsequent chief of staff to two Queensland-based Senators. I have also worked at the executive and senior levels in the community sector and Queensland government.
Writing came later in my professional life, the passion has always been below the surface waiting for the right time to make itself heard. I knew it had been calling out to me over the years, but life’s ebbs and flows always swallowed up the space required to sit and reflect. By the time I put pen to paper to write Corazon years later, I knew I had come home.
