She has published more than 25 articles and book chapters and has given over 50 presentations at international conferences. She is thrilled to have recently moved back to Australia after living and working for 15 years in the United States.

Her first book—which draws on the narratives of 74 men convicted of sexual offenses and released from custody—will be released in December.
