I’m a speculative fiction writer and doctor. My writing explores brains, minds, technology, outer space, and narrative identity.
My debut novel, Every Version of You, will be published by Affirm Press in 2022.
My short fiction can be found in Clarkesworld, Black Cranes: Tales of Unquiet Women, Going Down Swinging, Aurealis, Andromeda Spaceways Magazine, and other places. I have been shortlisted for an Aurealis Award, Norma K Hemming Award, and Viva la Novella.
The other version of me works in psychiatry. I have a longstanding interest in psychology, neuroscience, philosophy, consciousness, empathy, compassion, and the mind-body relationship. Several writers who have influenced me are Ursula K Le Guin, Oliver Sacks, Kazuo Ishiguro, Ted Chiang, Ken Liu, Isobelle Carmody, and Peter Singer.
I’m frequently excited by new ideas and always open to discussions, critiques, and collaborations. Feel free to reach out through the contact page or my social media accounts.
I acknowledge the Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the first inhabitants and traditional custodians of the lands where I live and work. I pay my respects to Elders, past, present, and future. Sovereignty has never been ceded.
