Journalist | Freelance Writer | Fiction writer

I am a freelance writer with a strong desire to inform and entertain the public, especially through lifestyle stories and book reviews. My professional experience largely comes from having worked as a journalist and PR specialist, including in women’s health and wellness, and exploring my passion for books and fiction writing.

From book reviews to conference workshops, this is a sample of some great projects I’ve recently been part of:

Project Lead – Women in Media Relaunch Project

I’ve had the pleasure of running this six-month return-to-work program for female media professionals, comprising of 10 online workshops and 17 delegates. In partnership with the WiM Board, I actively developed the curriculum, and sought and managed 30+ speakers including high-profile media personalities, executive professionals and niche specialists.

Book club reviews – ABC Gold Coast. Mornings with Sarah Cumming

I currently have the joy of being the weekly on-air book club reviewer for ABC Gold Coast, offering insights into commercially popular books, as well as sharing what’s new to the book market.

Author interview and articles – CelebrityKind

Extending on my interest and knowledge of commercially popular books and writing, I’ve worked with CelebrityKind, co-hosting an author interview for their podcast and creating ‘list style’ articles about books.

Workshop hosting – various clients

I’ve recently had the honour of creating and running workshops at large conferences including a session on ‘Social Media for Authors’ at Fiona McIntosh’s National Conference, and ‘Relaunch Your Career’ for the Women in Media National Conference.


Like all good journalists I first cut my teeth in a regional newsroom in Townsville. The allure of big city lights, however, was too strong and I began shaping my professional career in the busy landscape of Sydney. Here’s a little run down of my past professional roles:

  • • Manager of Media and Marketing for Feros Care, a not for profit aged care organisation
  • • Media Officer for The Genetics Education Centre, NSW Health
  • • Senior Consultant for boutique healthcare PR agency, VIVA! Communications
  • • Media Manager and Acting Editor with the Australian Medical Association (NSW)
  • • Journalist and Newsreader for Sea FM and Mix FM, Townsville.



The allure of fiction writing and books has drawn me to study the craft and experiment with writing a number of manuscripts in recent years. Writing courses completed include:

  • • Inside Story with Marian Keyes, Curtis Brown Creative (UK) 2023
  • • Writing a Psych. Thriller, Curtis Brown Creative (UK) 2022
  • • Masterclass of Fiction Writing with Fiona McIntosh 2021
  • • Mini Masterclass of Fiction Writing Fiona McIntosh 2018
  • • Creative Writing Stage One, Aus. Writers Centre 2016
