writer and funeral celebrant
I’m a writer and funeral celebrant living by the beach in Adelaide.
My second novel Surrogate is a story about fertility and choice across the generations. It’s published by Wakefield Press. My forthcoming novel, Blackout, is set in the Adelaide airport on the night of the statewide blackout.

Good mothers don’t give up their babies … do they?
Rachael Carter, a young nurse, is asked to house-sit by a colleague she barely knows. Dr Cate O’Reilly is travelling to Vietnam with her husband to adopt a baby. Before long the request has changed. The couple need a surrogate.
Rachael sees an opportunity to leave her own troubles behind, but is soon caught up in new struggles, both sexual and psychological. She discovers that this couple will do anything to see their dream of a child fulfilled.
Surrogate is a powerful story, beautifully told
