Background Story
In 2020, Naomi was in Japan when COVID hit, and she returned to a very different Australia. The experience of returning to a strange new landscape inspired Naomi to write a series of personal essays, which became her first published work.

Several of these essays are featured in the anthology, Life in the Time of Corona, about life during the first wave of the pandemic. Since then, Naomi has completed her novel Safe Keeping, a domestic suspense set in the High Country of Victoria, had an article published in oranges journal and became a regular book reviewer on the Australian Book Lovers Podcast. 

Currently, Naomi is working on a domestic suspense set in contemporary urban Melbourne.
