Pretty pictures need words, too

I recently had the pleasure of working on interior designer Kathy McKinnon’s new website as copywriter and editor. Beautiful, bespoke interiors require more than just money and a few clippings from a magazine. A professional designer like Kathy can take your ideas and elevate them to a whole new level. Based in inner-city Sydney, Kathy specialises in creating unique environments for her clients. Approachable and fun, she has a black book of premium suppliers and specialist trades that she can call on to achieve effects and finishes that are far ahead of mainstream trends. She also knows where to go to source bespoke furniture and premium features and fittings to ensure that your home, office or project is one of a kind. You can visit her site here at:

It’s a book!

It’s always a thrill when a book you’ve worked on makes it to the publication phase, so it was with great pleasure that I attended the launch of Graham Wilson’s Little Girl Lost in Balmain last week. You could describe Graham as a Renaissance man. A vet by trade, he is currently the Manager of Biosecurity and Emergency Services at Greater Sydney Local Land Services. He is also a natural story teller and prolific author. He has published nine books, including a memoir about growing up in Arnhem Land, and two series of racy novels set in outback Australia. I first met Graham at the NSW Writers’ Centre, and following the traditional business card exchange ritual, Graham commissioned me to prepare an editorial assessment for Little Lost Girl (at that time titled Old Balmain House). He must be very brave because he went on to commission me to prepare reports on the follow-up books in the series, Lizzie’s Tale and Devil’s Choice. If you’re interested in reading a slice of Sydney’s ‘imagined’ early history check out Graham’s books. They are available on Amazon and Smashwords.
