It’s always been love, words and music.
I am a writer, manuscript assessor, literary sector specialist and te reo Māori student. On any given day I could be working on my latest book, managing a literary event, writing for a magazine, or blogging here at www.lovewordsmusic.com. I am also a trustee for New Zealand Aotearoa’s national writers’ centre, the Michael King Writers’ Centre, and care passionately about the New Zealand literature scene.
I have a Masters in Creative Writing, a journalism degree, and a previous life as the owner of one of Aotearoa’s most successful model agencies.
My most recent manuscript (a memoir) has been selected for the New Zealand Society of Author’s 2018 CompleteMS programme. Recent awards include runner-up at both the 2017 NZ Heritage Awards (Short Fiction) and the 2016 Cathay Pacific Travel Media Award (Best New Travel Writer); Highly Commended in the 2017 New Zealand Heritage Writing Competition (Short Prose); winner of the 2015 Lilian Ida Smith Award (NZSA), and shortlisted for the 2015 Hachette Mentoring Programme (NZSA).
