1986 diary

Circa 1985

It’s always been love, words and music.

I am a writer, manuscript assessor, literary sector specialist, Otago Daily Times book reviewer, 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 New Zealand writing and writers.

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) won a 2018 New Zealand Society of Authors CompleteMS awardas well as the 2018 New Zealand Heritage Award for Short Prose. Other 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); long-listed for the 2017 National Flash Fiction Day Competition; winner of the 2015 Lilian Ida Smith Award (NZSA), and shortlisted for the 2015 Hachette Mentoring Programme (NZSA).
