I write poetry and creative non-fiction. My second book, a memoir called Ghost Wife, will be published by Black Inc. in 2013. It is about love, secrets, and same-sex marriage, and it tells of events that took place in Australia, the United States, and Canada. My first book, the poetry collection Electricity for Beginners, was published by Clouds of Magellan in June 2011. It was highly commended in the 2011 Fellowship of Australian Writers Anne Elder Award.
My poems and essays have appeared in journals, newspapers, and anthologies including the Australian Literary Review, The Best Australian Poems, Meanjin, The Australian, and Cultural Studies Review. I completed a PhD in creative writing at the University of Queensland in 2010.
