Hinterland Writing has been established to help you make sense of the past, to help you bring together all of  your family history research.

Do you have a shoe box or suitcase full of family  history photos and documents?

I can help you present this information in an interesting fun way, by helping make your ancestors three-dimensional characters allowing them to tell their story.

Perhaps you are the facts,  figures, and charts person.  I can help you put all your research together into something you will be proud to hand down to your children.

I have  been researching family history since the early 1980s  and have  a wealth of experience to draw on. I  completed my Bachelor of Creative Writing,  University of the Sunshine Coast in 2016. I am in the process of completing a Diploma of Family History Studies, University of Tasmania.  I am also a qualified Coach and Mentor and Life Celebrant. In 2017, I commenced my postgraduate studies, Master of Creative Writing Professional Practice with genealogy and historical based based research as my focus.

A published author primarily in academic journals, I recently project managed the microfiction  insert  in the 2015 USC Anthology  Within Without  and have co-edited and project managed  an anthology of creative family history stories based on work produced by students of the Writing for Family History unit  UTAS, 2015-2016. The anthology was published July 2016,  Secrets, Twists, Triumphs & Tragedies.

While completing  the preparation of this work that I discovered how much I enjoy helping people put flesh on the bones  of their ancestors and giving them the opportunity to tell their stories.  I will work with you to  organize your work,  releasing it from boxes and  binders into a  family history artifact. The result may be a book, a journal, a scrapbook or an online publication.

The most important thing is it will be what you want, and something you can share.

Welcome to Hinterland Writing

Every book is a quotation…and every man is a quotation from all his ancestors.

Ralph Waldo Emerson 1803-1882

Are you looking for someone to help you with writing up your family history research?

  • Do you have a shoe box full of stories and photographs and do not know what to do
  • with them?
  • Are your family trees disjointed, nothing more than  a group of facts and dates ?
  • Would you like to put flesh on the bones of your ancestors and see them as real people?
