I am a writer, editor, occasional creative writing tutor and the mother of two sons. My novels, all of which are published by Penguin Random House, are Night Swimming, Little Moon, Double Take, Relative Strangers, Fosterling and Billy Bird. My collections of poetry are Sleeve-notes and How to Make a Million (both from Random House) and Spark (from Steele Roberts) The Truth Garden, Tender Machines, and To the Occupant (all from 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)
