If you had to leave suddenly, with only a suitcase, what would you pack?  Half of Penny’s suitcase is filled with letters to and from family and friends.  Words are the currency of relationships and the record of feelings and thoughts that are irreplaceable.  Everything else can be replaced.

Penny has a Masters in Applied Linguistics and a background in teaching academic writing but has more recently branched into feature articles and memoir.  When she is not writing, she spends her time working for the South Coast Writers’ Centre, bringing services to fellow writers in the Southern Highlands of N.S.W. where she lives.
