It was lovely to see the Nell Forrest murder mystery series shortlisted for several years in the Davitt Awards (Sisters in Crime), and then - most recently - to have the first book Nefarious Doings featured in the 12 Lighthearted Mystery Series for Voracious Readers wiki.

Congratulations to Kat, Sally and Shelleyrae, who have each won naming rights in the Nell Forrest murder mysteries. They have now each moved into the fictional town of Majic. I’ll drop by with a casserole! And also congratulations to Colleen and Helen, who have both won a prize pack of books for the bookshelf competition. Thanks to all who entered - I loved the bookshelves, including the weird and wonderful ones!

Check out the
Bouquet of Aussie (women) writers catalogue. It’s a couple of years old now but still full of wonderful reading inspiration! And while you’re in the right frame of mind, then sign up for the Australian Women Writers Challenge! Join the fun!

(Still) very pleased that a piece I wrote for the National Times (
Bruised Women Fade to Black in Newton Saga won the 2011 EVA (Eliminating Violence Against Women) Award for best online journalism. A great initiative and a great honour. Other pieces published recently include Balls: an optional extra (Online Opinion, June 2012),  and Auntie Takes the Prize (Mamamia, September 2012).

The blog at has been temporarily suspended (due to time constraints) - but the book (tentatively titled The Invisible Woman, and other remarkable phenomena of middle-age), will still forge ahead - eventually.

I’m on both Facebook and Twitter now so feel free to say hi - but please don’t expect too much of my technological abilities! I’m still trying to get my head around all this socialisation...
