A teaching career is what Di wanted when at school but she was always writing. In those days pen friends were popular and Di wrote to girls her own age in the UK, Asia and Australia. She was also an enthusiastic Argonaut and had some of her stories read on the ABC and one published in the ABC Childrens’ newspaper.
In 2012 she graduated from Swinburne University with a Master of Arts (Writing), and then went on a solo drive around Australia taking five months to complete the journey. She then founded the Writers of Wynnum Manly, is a member of the Queensland Writers Centre, Caboolture Historical Society and president of the Society of Women Writers Qld.
Di is a Senior Writer for WeekendNotes.com, and writes content for several websites.
