Driving into the Dark
New Release – 2022
Driving into the Dark is a collection of poems published over the last five years. There are narrative poems and poems that respond to daily life and to world events. They reflect upon life’s precious moments, its vagaries, its joys and the nature of love and loss.
Ecological Anxiety collects 18 poems reflecting concerns about biodiversity and the environment.
The Suicide Season
When demoralised Warren Yeats abandons his failing business, his ex-wife and his city lifestyle to embark on a road trip with more twists and turns than Sydney’s streets, he has no idea how gruelling the outback can be.
Reflections While Flying On Empty
‘Reflections While Flying on Empty is the work of a poet who has grown and matured and is now in full flight. There is a depth of reflection, well observed and expressed. These poems remain in one’s memory long after reading’ Joan Keating, Fryer Library, University of Queensland
Escaping the Triad
An historical novel with supernatural overtones for young adults about Chinese migration during Australia’s nineteenth century goldrush.
Under Centuri contains fifteen short stories about life in contemporary rural Australia. They are humorous or poignant, universal in their themes, socially aware and have emotional impact.
Australia is one of the most urbanised countries in the world. The stories in this collection, however, depict another Australia ranging from lush tropical wetlands to the arid outback.
These selected poems are representative of a lifetime crafting and coaxing words into poems.
Stormbird Press interview
A modern melodramatic play for those who believe there are more than just stars in the night sky.
“My imagination was stirred during nights listening to stories beside a glowing fire or staring into an infinity of stars.”
