About Aurora South

I am a resident of Sydney’s fringe in New South Wales, Australia –  the area colloquially known as the ‘inner west’. I’ve been a wordsmith and keeper of stories since I can remember, starting my first diary at the age of eleven.

In 2012, I began publishing to a wider audience.

My early career as a chef led to many adventures worth writing about, such as meeting Sir Elton John and catering for an intimate wedding beside a river with no electricity or vehicle access.

I chose the name Aurora South for my blog as a nod to the southern lights of Australia and New Zealand, Aurora Australis. It also references the Southern Aurora, an overnight express train; a name I remember from my childhood. Its launch brought the cities of Melbourne and Sydney closer together.

I am a member of the NSW Writers Centre where I attend the Open Genre Writing Group, a contributor to Writer’s Edit, Newswrite and Dragonfiles magazines, and the 12 Short Stories Writing Challenge. I have also been published in the international literary journal When Women Waken and the South Coast Writers Centre blog.
