Trish is a farmer living in the top of the south, writing plays, short stories and occasional forays into other genres. She enjoys producing work which makes people smile, or makes them thoughtful.
In the first few months of 2019 her play Sarah-Jane was produced in Nelson, with an encore at Garin College. Sarah-Jane explores society’s reaction to the relationship between a young girl and an elderly man, as well as covering issues around adoption and loss.
Trish's work 'The suitcase' was long-listed in the 2019 Flash Fiction Short Short Competition.
She has also extensively researched her family history, with some branches documented back to circa 950. In 2018 she completed the Diploma in Creative Writing from NMIT.
