First blog for 2013

It’s been a long time between blogs.

Today I got an e-mail with a PDF of my poem “Lone Pine”, which School Magazine are publishing in their April issue close to Anzac Day. It has been illustrated by Matt Ottley…just a pine tree… but that’s my claim to fame today!!

Have been spending some time polishing stories and tidying some up, adding to some and taking away from others.


My office wall is almost covered in quotes now and I love it. Will have to start writing smaller to fit more in.

Here’s the latest. From the novel “Benang” by Kim Scott which has now become my all time favourite Australian novel. You SHOULD read it.

“There is smoke and ash in my skin. And in my heart too.”
