Naomi is happiest curled with a good book and a cup of tea. However, Naomi loves concocting her linguistic alchemy, seeking to kintsugi her own and the experiences of others. Through the brokenness and toxicity around her, Naomi aims to reveal life's transformative gold so we all grow in kindness, respect and love.

Naomi’s work has helped many global brands and not-for-profit organisations achieve sustainable organisational purpose, inclusion, performance and innovation.

Not given to accepting tokenism, Naomi has significant lived experience of the damage caused by platitudes and corrosive, toxic workplace behaviours and institutional systems. Living with degenerative illnesses and disabilities, Naomi has brushed up close and personal with the Grim Reaper too many times. Her complex family history provides her with a deep intergenerational understanding of trauma, “otherness”, and the cost of military service and war.

A StepWitch to two beautiful and brave souls, Naomi is also a proud parent of multiple fur babies and rainbow souls.

Naomi lives to enjoy glitter in her teacup, sashaying in the light of a disco ball whilst blowing bubbles and twirling sparklers: a timeless unicorn.

Your support inspires me as I write for thirty days this month.

Tupelo Press provides the canvas; I bring my words, accompanied by a cohort of fine poets, writing thirty poems in thirty days, all ours to edit and submit as we wish. 30/30 poems have been taken by over 200 journals and featured in over 40 published chapbooks, all so Tupelo Press can keep publishing exquisite and diverse voices that might never be heard otherwise.

Every dollar gives me the confidence to write more and helps the press place more poems in gorgeous books. Help me to help this distinguished press. Give today!

Every donor will receive a copy of my weekly newsletter exploring the ups and downs of the writing process.

For donations over $50, I will be offering donors the choice of a specially crafted poem for themselves or someone else.

I appreciate your support; it means a great deal to me!
