Writer  .  Editor  .  Author

I am an engaging, versatile writer who brings a rare, compelling
soulfulness to print, digital, social media and multimedia. I regularly contribute to magazines in the US, UK and Australia, covering artists, innovators, entrepreneurs as well as lifestyle and relationships, business
and bridal. I have worked in-house as deputy editor, responsible for
project management, commissioning, editing and proofreading—I am
a pro at managing publishing projects from concept to finished product.

In the non-profit world, I excel at marketing appeals, database segmentation, innovative collateral and supporter-centric campaigns,
as seen in my work for one of Australia’s largest non-profits, Compassion Australia. But my first love is writing. I am the author of the children’s
book A House for Donfinkle and contributed to the award-winning anthology, Sound of Silence. I really love dinosaurs and tea.
I really don’t love caterpillars.

Me, Choechoe

' Up high in the grasslands where
  Wooble Beasts roam, Donfinkle Vonkrinkle
  is building his home. When up pop four
  creatures to babble and squawk, a
  troublesome taunt full of bothersome talk. '


Lovely rhyming text by author Choechoe Brereton coupled with digital artwork by award-winning illustrator Wayne Harris.

The Sound of Silence anthology

' Miscarriage is so common and yet it is an
  unspeakable subject. Women often grieve
  alone, mourning a child they have never met

  but whose future they have already imagined.
  It is a private, hidden kind of grief. In The Sound
  of Silence twenty-two women speak out about
  their experiences of miscarriage. These are
  stories of loss and loneliness, hope and joy,
  strength and courage, and, most of all,
  overwhelming love. They are a reminder to all
  women who have experienced a miscarriage
  that they are not alone. '
