Hi there, I’m Vanessa.
This is my personal blog, where I share book news, writing updates and a slice of life.
In 2018 I decided to stop procrastinating and get serious about being an author.
My inspiration is a quote from Carrie Fisher.
“Stay afraid, but do it anyway. What’s important is the action. You don’t have to wait to be confident. Just do it and eventually the confidence will follow.”
Me at home
I’m based in Canberra, Australia, which is not as cold or boring as most people think. In fact it’s a pretty great place to live and I feel lucky to be raising my kids in our nation’s capital.
I’m a mum to two creative teenagers who tease me relentlessly for my inability to work the T.V remote, but who are always the lights of my life.
When I’m not writing I love to read, listen to podcasts, visit farmer’s markets, cook and travel.
Me at work
Many moons ago, in a world before the internet, I studied marketing at university. In the 25 years since I graduated I’ve worked in communications, public relations, event management, media, advertising and more recently, in social media and digital marketing.
Outside of my day job I’ve been writing and blogging in one form or another since 1999. I enjoy creating content and building blogs and websites on WordPress.
Before you go
Thanks so much for taking the time to find out a little more about me and what I write about.
