byron bay writers festival crowd

Events, festivals, conferences and bar mitzvahs

For over ten years I have spruiked my tales and wares at writer’s festivals, travel expos, schools, libraries and conferences around the world.
I have presented at a whole range of events from a slide show at the largest book shop in Stuttgart and a women’s knitting club in Townsville to a
train manufacturer’s annual dinner in Brisbane and a library in the outer suburbs of Singapore.

I’m available for speaking engagements, travel-writing seminars, writer’s festivals, book events and, well, anything really.
