ABOUT ME

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

I write 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. My next book, The Memories That Make Us will be published in March 2018. You can pre-order a copy 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.

In September 2016, I hosted my first sold-out writing retreat in Tuscany called Your Beautiful Writing Life. Last year, myself and author Lisa Ireland hosted a retreat in Daylesford, Victoria, AUSTRALIA. For more information on 2018 retreats in both Daylesford and Tuscany, visit the website.

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.
