Writer On The Road

Giving you the tools you need to write your way to freedom, from wherever you are on the writing journey...

The show & its producer

There's a secret we intrepid adventurers know, a secret I learnt years ago when I lived on my yacht and sailed the Whitsundays here in Oz, and it's a secret that ninety percent of people don't know. It is possible to earn a living with your writing. I've been writing stories for as long as I can remember. I write, teach high school English, podcast and coach. I also dream of running away with the circus.
