My writing

Dirt Circus League

“I stumbled towards the Meat House, my body shaking with the violence that raged within me, as the realisation of the mistake I had made in coming here rose to the surface of my mind. This was the last place I should be. That thought was crossed by another, even more terrifying.

This is exactly where I belong.”

Set in modern-day remote Queensland, Dirt Circus League is a genre-bending young adult novel about the powerful allure of danger and the battles we face with our demons in a world beyond our control.

Dirt Circus League is available from Text Publishing 30 March 2021.

I acknowledge the Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the traditional owners of the land and waters of Australia, and pay my respects to Elders past, present and emerging.

I recognise Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islander peoples have never ceded sovereignty.
