UnderstoryUnderstory was inspired by ...

My affinity with trees and a decade spent living inside a forest on the Sunshine Coast hinterland.

Describe Understory in one sentence:

A journey of staying in one place told through trees.

The best part of writing Understory was ...

Finding a structure for the story, and then the perspective it has given me of my own life.

My favourite place to curl up with a book is ...

By an open fire in winter, preferably with a glass of red wine.
