2021 Finalist, Glendower Award for an Emerging Queensland Writer, for The Luminous Heart

Judges’ comments 

‘The Luminous Heart’ is a beautifully written semi-autobiographical novel about one woman’s experience of moving to live on a small island off the Queensland coast with her young daughter. It is full of wonderful observations and reflections on human nature, friendships and family, as well as unexpected local drama as our narrator comes to realise she’s now living in one of Australia’s ice capitals.
