I am a writer, editor, creative writing tutor and the mother of two sons. My novels, all of which are published by Random House, are Night Swimming, Little Moon, Double Take, Relative Strangers, and Fosterling. My collections of poetry are Sleeve-notes and How to Make a Million (both from Random House) and Spark (from Steele Roberts) and The Truth Garden and Tender Machines (Otago University Press).
The frequency of posts on this blog will be as unpredictable as the hurly burly merry-go-sorry of raising children and freelance editing work. They will mainly be about literary events and/or the small pockets of time in which the writer is allowed out to play, when the worker and mother aren’t needed.
As Ursula Le Guin so wisely says, “Waiting, of course, is a very large part of writing.” (The Wave in the Mind)
