My Story

 After 20 years as an occupational therapist, the chance for me to pursue my love of writing beckoned. I pushed on a few doors of opportunity, and they opened – my stories were published, and I won an award. A journey of successful stepping stones landed me at a conference, where, in a moment of reflection on my emerging writerly identity, the epiphany descended: You are a quiet revolutionary.

Currently based just north of Brisbane, Australia, my life packages an amalgamation of experiences on different continents. I grew up and married in South Africa. Hubby and I adventured in the UK and Europe for several years, had a stint of blizzard and spring life in Boston, Massachusetts, and then decided to grow our roots and leaves in beautiful Queensland’s sunshine.

Why ‘The Quiet Revolutionary’? 


A story can change a mindset.
A clearly written paragraph can stimulate action.
A campaign of narratives can change a culture.

 

Words can change the world. And they don’t have to be loud.

Back to you, and let’s make sure the message and tone is right
