For most of my career, I worked at ABC Radio National as a producer/reporter on the various incarnations of the Books and Arts programs. I left when Tony Abbott's No Cuts to the ABC- didn't happen. My novel "getting Up" about a graffiti artist set in Melbourne in the 1980s was published by Pan Macmillan in 2013 under the nom de plume SD Thorpe.
I also work (and live) with Frank Veldze who is the presenter of Down the Rabbit Hole, Wed 8-10pm. We live full time in central Castlemaine and think its the best place on earth, and feel honoured to be a part of it.
I am also on the board of management, and am the Program Manager of MAINfm- the best little station in the nation.
MAINfm is privileged to broadcast from Jaara Country, and we acknowledge and pay our respects to the Dja Dja Wurrung people, as the traditional custodians and caretakers of this land. We thank them for the care they have taken of Country, and honour their Elders past, present and emerging.
