Published in children's fiction and community journalism, I call the central west New South Wales town of Narromine home. My motto is: "take the ordinary within you and make it extraordinary."


To squeak or creak, like new shoes or boots, as in “The scrooping of new ‘Sunday’ boots gave a great pleasure to the wearers while walking into church because it indicated a degree of prosperity.” from the Dictionary of Newfoundland English (University of Toronto Press, 1982).
