I have been writing fiction and non-fiction for more than 30 years and I have had a good deal of magazine and newspaper experience in both New Zealand and Australia as a publisher, editor, sub-editor, journalist, feature writer and copywriter - working in both a team environment and as a freelancer. I am now based in Sydney. I have a Graduate Diploma in Journalism Studies from Massey University (2009) and in 2008 I was awarded the Freelance Writer category of the 2007/2008 Statistics New Zealand Journalism Award. In that same year, I was also the recipient of the Bruce Jesson Critical Writing Award which included a grant toward the writing of a book about certain aspects of Auckland's transport history.
