She says, "I advocate the powers of poetry and encourage unity in diversity in the Australian, Baha'i and Pasifika literary landscapes and find the people and natural landscapes of Queensland inspiring and fascinating. I have a developing interest in the movement to respectfully invent new Australian fairy tales! New works in development, include a biography, a story collection, and a novel.
