Gene-Author-Editor-Queen of ShebaHi and welcome to my site!  If you love words and the things they can do, you’ve come to the right place.  The well is dark and the water’s deep, so do jump in.

I’m a Bram Stoker Award®- and Shirley Jackson Award-winning fiction editor. My work has also been nominated for the British Fantasy Award, the Australian Shadows Award, and the Aurealis Award. I love to help authors write what they mean and mean what they write.

I have two psychology degrees which I only use for nefarious purposes. I’m a proud  member of the Institute of Professional Editors Ltd (IPEd), the Australasian Horror Writers Association and the Horror Writers Association.

I’m also a horror writer with a love of tales that unsettle and B-grade action movies. My short stories have been published in Australia as well as internationally.

You can catch me having fun with the Brisbane Writers’ Workshop, where I co-facilitate creative writing classes. Check out our fabulous workshops here.

If you’d like help getting the story in your head onto the page, check out my editing services here. Want something that will send chilly fingers down your spine? Check out my published works and see if anything takes your fancy.

Thanks for stopping by,
