About Sky

Sky’s goal is to build a long-term career as an author of page-turning, thoughtful and cinematic fiction – the sort of books that keep you up way past your bedtime and leave you hungry for the next.

Sky has crafted a career as a book and magazine editor, journalist and corporate communicator while devoting her spare time to writing fiction.

She thinks of each manuscript as a love affair – she’s a Libran, she falls in love with everything – but In the Shadows of Grace is a keeper. It’s the story she’s been waiting her whole life to tell, weaving her explorations of the metaphysical world into an epic tale about saving the world through feminine empowerment, ancient wisdom and heartfelt compassion (with plenty of sex, explosions and plot twists along the way).

Sky offers freelance writing and editing services through her company Heartspace Enterprises.

She has Honours in Creative Writing at the University of Adelaide. She was a fiction editor of literary journal Wet Ink, co-editor of short story anthology Forked Tongues (published by Wakefield Press), a panelist at the Melbourne Writers’ Festival and an MC at Adelaide Writers’ Week. She has hosted book and magazine launches, reviewed books, been interviewed on radio and is a regular contributor to podcasts.

She has also run writing workshops for creative writers, business people and as therapy for people suffering eating disorders and women experiencing homelessness.

She lives in Adelaide with a musical teenager and a 75-year-old galah who likes to set the neighbourhood dogs off by barking at them.

  1. You are a very impressive person Sky, you should be very proud of your professional and personal achievements. This quote from Enid Bagnold may resonate with you….
    Who wants to become a writer? And why? Because it’s the answer to everything. … It’s the streaming reason for living. To note, to pin down, to build up, to create, to be astonished at nothing, to cherish the oddities, to let nothing go down the drain, to make something, to make a great flower out of life, even if it’s a cactus.”
    —Enid Bagnold


  2. I love it Sky. It is so you and every word is something magical in showing us how engage with your quirks and your thinking ☺
