ABOUT ME

I'm Vanessa and I'm so glad to be connecting with you! 

I write women's fiction and the occasional freelance article too. My debut novel, THE FLORENTINE BRIDGE sold in a two-book deal to Harlequin Australia and is available now! You can read more about that here or purchase the book here.

I love working with like-minded writers and use my skills as a Life Coach to help writers transform their writing lives and become comfortable with pursuing their writing dreams. I have a deep respect for the craft of writing and my approach to writing is one that encompasses writing mindfully.

I’m the co-host of the Podcast, Your Creative Life, where each week, I, alongside my co-host Kimberley Foster, connect with writers, authors, publishing professionals and creative entrepreneurs to explore topics designed to help writers feel uplifted about the writing process and living a creative life.

Last September, I hosted my first sold-out writing retreat in Tuscany called Your Beautiful Writing Life. Later this year, myself and author Lisa Ireland will be hosting another retreat in Daylesford, Victoria, AUSTRALIA.

From time to time I'll be hosting workshops for writers, so be sure to add yourself to my newsletter list to keep up to date with forthcoming workshop dates, including a future retreat news. 

I’m represented by Cassie Hanjian of Waxman Leavell Literary Agency.
