Christmas and holiday greetings to all readers and writers across the globe! May the coming year be filled with peace, love and wonderful words.

I’m very excited to announce that I have been fortunate enough to be awarded an Australia Council grant towards my next novel. I’m thrilled at AusCo’s faith in my writing and my project, and very much looking forward to completing and polishing this work in progress. Grants are an invaluable addition to the practical life of a writer.
