The Heart of a Heist

Released March 19 2022

Wilde is a thief…
Grace is a teacher…
Will secrets tear them apart?

It’s a boring day at Wilde’s cover job as a docent at the local museum. She fills the time with a little mischief… but it turns interesting when the boss walks in with a young woman. Seeing her chance to test a theory, Wilde introduces herself to the woman. Little does she know, that moment causes a ripple that changes everything.

What happens when a thief falls in love with a school teacher? When the biggest part of a person is held back, unknown to the other? When someone starts to question what it is they really want in their life?

The Heart of a Heist is a story about the meeting of a mastermind thief and a school teacher, and how they navigate the hidden pieces of themselves. It’s set in a town with a tale that could be either history or legend. There are ancient artefacts, lives at stake, a super secret agency, a fumbling fence as a friend, thugs battling for possession and power… and a love story that seems impossible, until it isn’t.

Prose & Procrastination: Call It What You Will

Released February 01 2020

I have no name for this space, call it what you will, call it what you want, call it something else, call it nothing at all, but for me… it was mine, and now it’s ours.

It’s a space without rules. It’s a project of freedom in creativity, expression without expectation.To share the pieces that pulled me into the work I love, and the words of others that have shaped new paths in my heart and my mind. To air past heartbreaks that lingered. To study why some things stick in my mind, and how others are lost the second I see them, barely seen or recognised in the moment. To release the simple thoughts, the one-liners and brain worms that burrow and repeat in my mind. To show the accidental and offhand shots that picture truth in glimpses of the cities I’ve fallen in love with and then left, their graffiti and street art, their people and places, their grunge and softness.

I didn’t create any of these things for you. But I made this space to share. In reading, I hope that you’ll find a freedom of your own, see things from a different perspective, appreciate the little things in life that make it whole, that make it ours and no one else’s.

The “Prose & Procrastination: Call It” series is a four-part, zine-style, mash-up of prose, street photography, articles, short stories, and one-liners.
