About

Freelance Writer

Wedding Stories | Travel | Lifestyle | Content | Corporate | Copywriting

I am a freelance writer who loves photography, loitering near the ocean and nosing about street-markets.

I live on Victoria’s Bellarine Peninsula where the eclectic and vibrant city of Geelong has finally risen to the acclaim she deserves.

I love what I do and as Geelong emerges as a truly artistic city, I think I’m in the perfect place to be a writer. I am a founding member of the Geelong Performing Arts Centre Giving Circle where, through the arts, we strive to create a lasting and life-changing impact on Geelong.

I write regularly for Geelong & Surf Coast Living Magazine, nationally recognised by Publishers Australia as one of the nation’s leading lifestyle and consumer magazines. I also write for Business Life every month and I’m chief writer for Living Bliss, an annual publication dedicated to all things weddings.

I am creator and founder of Love Tales, wedding story writers.

I have an Associate Diploma in Travel & Tourism / Business and am a graduate of the Australian Writers’ Centre.

Testimonials

I just wanted to pass on my personal thanks to you for the fantastic article you did on the Geelong Kokoda Youth program. Your calm, supportive and caring nature in which you communicated to those youth involved was very impressive and professional. The way you delivered the struggles and tribulations of the youth within the article was a fantastic to read. I know your story will contribute greatly to the youth of this year’s program and beyond. With great thanks.  Michael Reid, Acting Superintendent, Operational Systems Support Division, Information, Systems and Security Command, Victoria Police.

Kristie wrote a creative and well researched story, “Lorne by Mustang” covering the Great Ocean Road to Lorne in Get Up & Go magazine. It was descriptive and provided the reader with just the right amount of information about the various places to visit. Mustang & Co. were delighted with the way that Kristie portrayed the tour that we offer along this stretch of coast. Kristie also has a great eye for photography and captured some wonderful images to accompany the story. Cheers.  Lisa Cunningham, Mustang & Co.

How fortunate Hugh Palmer and I were to have you spend time listening to us proudly speak of Truffleduck.  The article you wrote represented the passion we have for the business and our exciting journey over many years.  Thanks Kristie, your article was accurately written and for that we are very grateful.  Debra Nash, General Manager, Truffleduck.
