Hi there, I’m Vanessa.
I’m a professional writer, specialising in creative non-fiction in a wide variety of genres. These include communication, personal development, family life, women’s issues, travel, food, books, pop culture and other topics that grab my interest.
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 the lights of my life.
When I’m not writing I love to read, 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 and am also proficient in Drupal, Google Analytics and Facebook Ads.
Before you go
Thanks so much for taking the time to find out a little more about me and what I write about.
