My memoir, ‘Matt, Bridget and Me’ shares what it was like for me when my husband of nine years, Australian Army infantry officer Matt, came out as transgender and became Bridget.
Excerpts from this manuscript earned me an Australian Society of Authors Mentorship in 2013 and the 2014 Varuna Eric Dark Flagship Fellowship for Non-fiction Writing. The Eric Dark fellowship was established in memory of Blue Mountains writer and social activist Eric Dark, and is awarded for a non-fiction application of outstanding quality in social, historical or political writing. Both awards were a great honour to receive as a first time creative writer.
The book is contracted to Simon and Schuster Australia for publication.
