DEATH OF A TYPOGRAPHER will be published by Arden in the UK and USA in March 2020.
In January 2020 I was interviewed about DEATH OF A TYPOGRAPHER by Valerie Khoo for the podcast ‘So You Want to be a Writer’. We had a good chat about font obsessives, and why they make great material for fiction.
My first novel GHOSTLINES (Scribe, 2008) won a Victorian Premier’s Literary Award and a Ned Kelly Award.
I also write non-fiction, usually something to do with place. My essays and articles have appeared in Meanjin, Griffith Review, Kill Your Darlings, Elsewhere: a Journal of Place, The Guardian and several anthologies.
I am the author of the blog Melbourne Circle, and I won the Nature Conservancy Australia Nature Writing Prize in 2015 for an essay about the western suburbs of Melbourne titled ‘A Landscape of Stories’, published in Griffith Review.
I have previously been writer-in-residence at the Mildura Writers Festival (2016) and have appeared at the Melbourne Writers Festival, Williamstown Literary Festival, the Crime and Justice Festival and Aireys Festival of Words.
