I published my first story in 1980 when I was still a Masters student at Sydney University. At the time, I saw it as a way of selling my underwater photography to a broader market. A lot has happened since then. Around the mid 1980s I became contract writer for an Australian-Pacific inflight magazine (Ansett Airlines; if you’re over 30 years old and Australian, you might recall them) and also a foreign correspondent for an Hawaiian news journal. This was before stories were digitialised. I have no idea how many weekly articles I filed over those pre-Internet years, so as you peruse short stories, articles, Stargate stories, and novels, please be aware the lists of published works are by no means comprehensive.
Currently, I’m working on the second novel on the young adult series The Runes of Creation. The first novel, Bone Menagerie, is out now, and I’m about 60,000 words into the second book, Fugitive Angel. Meanwhile, my first novel, The Rhesus Factor, has recently been revised for publication with Musa in December.
I tutor at The New Zealand Writers’ College and have 25 students who keep my on my toes. My most recent graduate of the Advanced Novel Writing Course has just published her first work, Beneath the Perfect World under the pseudonym, Hannah Graham.
