(1965- ) Australian author whose work has generally been nonfantastic. Of sf interest is The Natural Way of Things (2015), set in a very Near Future Dystopian Australia and centering on a group of women first drugged (see Drugs) then forcibly confined to a Keep deep in the outback. They discover that they are being punished (see Feminism; Women in SF; Sex) for the sin of behaving "badly" with powerful men. A Slingshot Ending leaves no surety over their possible release. [JC]
