Your book bag is empty
 You were the designer for Margaret River Press’s upcoming book, Fervor. What did the design process involve for the cookbook and how did you approach the design brief?  Like most of my projects, the process starts off with getting to know the client and their needs. Understanding the brief is really important before moving forward […]
You edited the recipes in Margaret River Press’s upcoming book, Fervor. How does editing recipes differ from traditional book editing? My focus as an editor of recipes is to ensure that the recipes make sense—as in, is the amount of sugar right? And would one really add the eggs before the water?—so that the reader can […]
You were the photographer for Margaret River Press’s upcoming cookbook Fervor. Tell me about the project and what the photography process involved. The process initially involved joining Paul on a few of his road trips throughout WA and the Northern Territory while documenting the foraging aspect of what he does. Once we had the structure of […]

As I made my way down Madaffari Drive, I assumed the noise was birds. It was only my second year in Exmouth, so it seemed possible that there were species I hadn’t yet come across…
Your story ‘The Chopping Block’ won the South West Prize in the MR Short Story competition. How did you approach the story from conception through to completion? Were there certain challenges in its execution? A majority of my writing is speculative fiction...
What was it like to be on the other side of the writing process and to edit the collection of short stories for the Margaret River Short Story Competition? I've done a bit of editing work before; I was one of the fiction editors for the…
Nina, you eat too much. Every meal you tell yourself, You’ve got to stop eating like this. You never feel hungry. You never feel full. You’re always out of control. Now it’s 9pm. Again, you’ve sent yourself to bed to stop yourself eating. Again, you can’t sleep: all...
