— Review of Fake Stephanie Wood , 2019 single work autobiography

'In 2014 the writer Stephanie Wood returned to what she calls the badlands of online dating. She ended up exchanging emails with “Joe”, who seemed gentle, uncomplicated and only a little bit of a dag. The emails developed into a date and then a romance that showed every sign of being love.' (Introduction)

— Review of The Van Apfel Girls Are Gone Felicity McLean , 2019 single work novel

'Felicity McLean’s debut novel, The Van Apfel Girls Are Gone, has been described as Picnic at Hanging Rock for a new generation. In Joan Lindsay’s classic, the girls go missing from Appleyard College, while the titular surname in McLean’s book recalls the same fruit. Cordie, Hannah and Ruth Van Apfel are three sisters who seem to evaporate into the endless, suffocating summer of 1992.' (Introduction)

1 Treasured Catie McLeod , 2018 single work essay
— Appears in: Voiceworks , Summer no. 113 2018; (p. 77-81)
'There are three of us in the car. Dave's driving. I'm in the passenger seat, knees bent, feet propped up on the esky. Behind me, the Subaru is overflowing. Tools, leather gloves, screws, rope, cable ties, towels. An Akubra hat dangles off the headrest. Maps are strewn everywhere and it smells like dust. Finn's wedged next to a strange contraption spread wide across two back seats.' (Publication abstract)
