Gallery: My Books – links under construction

I have been writing forever it seems. My first was a play about the flower fairies I saw in my Grandma’s Garden when I was child. I think I persuaded my brother to perform it with me, a creative work? My mother kept a copy of it, so I know it happened and I remember the flower was a Tiger Lily.

I began writing articles for publication when I began diving at 18, many were published in early diving magazines and I went on to write and publish magazines, and when I went on to university, I was writing essays, reports and so on. After I became a mother, I wrote short stories, the first published was The Expatriate which won a Billy Blue Literary Award and is now published here.

In 1989 while I worked at the Australian Museum, I wrote a book published by Doubleday/ Transworld with my ex-husband Kevin Deacon. It was about our diving experiences and was very successful.

It is published here also, under my copyright. I worked for TAFE for 5 years, working on External Course material and then teaching in Communications up to Associate Diploma level courses. I also taught Creative Writing in Women’s Reentry Programs. I also worked for Workcover on Hazardous Substances, and CCH the legal Publisher and for the Journalists Agency. I also worked as Science Editor on The Australian Encyclopedia. In 1991, I met Aboriginal Elder Guboo Ted Thomas, from Yuin tribe in Southeastern NSW. He predicted I would be going Walkabout. Within a week I had a job at The Supervising Scientist for Alligator Rivers first in Sydney then in Jabiru NT publishing Annual Reports and scientific papers. I also met Bill Neidjie in Kakadu and edited a paper he gave to a conference in Jabiru and he signed copies of his books, Story about Feelings and Kakadu Man.

In 2012 I self published the book Kakadu Dreaming, a book of poetry written while In Jabiru. Following this I went online to promote the book and have been publishing a blog on WordPress which has over 2,000 blogs now. In order to make this Encyclopaedia length material more accessible, I collected material into books and they are collected here as eBooks. In 2022 I registered a domain name and changed my online presence from: to
