A Bit About Me

I'm a Murri woman from Eidsvold, Queensland, currently doing my PhD in Creative Writing at the University of Canberra, where I also do some teaching. I've been a Canberra resident since 2006, where I am obsessed with having four season. My first novel, Ghost Bird, came out on 1 October 2019. I'm an award-winning writer, sessional academic, freelance editor, publishing consultant, devoted aunty and owned by an insane staffy.

Remember daughter, the world is a lot bigger than anyone knows. There are things that science may never explain. Maybe some things that shouldn’t be explained.

Stacey and Laney are twins – mirror images of each other – and yet they’re as different as the sun and the moon. Stacey works hard at school, determined to get out of their small town. Laney skips school and sneaks out of the house to meet her boyfriend. But when Laney disappears one night, Stacey can’t believe she’s just run off without telling her.

As the days pass and Laney doesn’t return, Stacey starts dreaming of her twin. The dreams are dark and terrifying, difficult to understand and hard to shake, but at least they tell Stacey one key thing – Laney is alive. It’s hard for Stacey to know what’s real and what’s imagined and even harder to know who to trust. All she knows for sure is that Laney needs her help.

Stacey is the only one who can find her sister. Will she find her in time?
