I am a Melbourne-based writer, book artist and maker of stuff.

My writing has been published in Going Down Swinging (2016), Infinite Scroll (2015) and The Big Issue (2013).

My short story 'Numb' was shortlisted for the 2017 Commonwealth Short Story Prize. Twenty-one stories were shortlisted, from more than 6000 entries, by an international judging panel. In October 2015, I was a resident at the Arteles Creative Centre in Haukijarvi, Finland.

I am currently working on a novel of historical fiction.

When not writing or reading books, I make them. I also sell my handcrafted and oftentimes functional products through the label girl_boy_goat.


She is definitely human.
