I am the author of Whisky Charlie Foxtrot and A New Map of the Universe, which was shortlisted for the West Australian Premier’s Book Awards. I have had short fiction and commentary published in Westerly and Southerly, been a writer-in-residence at Katherine Susannah Prichard Writer’s Centre and hold a PhD in Writing from Edith Cowan University.
My third novel, The Ark, will be released as an interactive digital app in 2013. I am currently writing a steampunk-inspired adventure starring a mad scientist, an evil priestess and the mother of all tsunamis, tentatively titled Ciudad.
Like most writers, I’m an avid reader. These are some of the books that really rock my world:
