I'm a freelance writer living in Perth.
I enjoy gardening and films. I have appeared in several local short films.
A violent but true story now on film
Every year Perth audiences have the opportunity to see some amazing foreign films during the Perth International Arts Festival.
One outstanding film this year is 12 Years a Slave. Based upon a book written by Solomon Northup, this is the true story of a New York man who was kidnapped and taken to Louisiana and was a slave on cotton plantations during the 1840's. This film concentrates on those twelve years of his life and the people he came into contact with, both the good and many bad people.
