I was born in Brisbane, grew up in Carnarvon on the north coast of Western Australia and lived in and around Newtown, Sydney, for about 15 years. There was a year in Prague in 1990 and brief stints in Wollongong and Katoomba.

I moved to Bathurst in 2003, where I now live with my partner Steve, a National Parks ranger.

I’ve been keeping a journal since I was about 12 years old. If you go digging backwards through my blog archive, you’ll see that there are entries that predate the invention of blogging. That’s where I’ve typed in entries originally written longhand in exercise books.
