Recently, for a change of pace, I am writing two Australian history books. In 2014 I was elected Chair of the ACT Writers Centre.

In 2010 I established the Stringybark Short Story Awards to promote the short story as a literary form.

Firstly, open disclosure - I am fortunate to have my story included in Fault Lines, and having read the quality and diversity of the stories presented, somewhat humbled by the quality. This book successfully inserts faces and feelings to what could be just another story about something that happened a lot time ago. While not changing history, the various points of view added depth and interest. I also learned a great deal of history. Easy reading and relevant. Well done.
