She has yet to publish a pamphlet or collection.

Hamish Danks Brown, a.k.a. Danksta Downunder, (1957-?) is originally from Sydney but moved to Melbourne in 2016 after overseas travels and over a decade in Queensland caring for his parents. He is on the committee of the Melbourne Poets Union and convenes open mic events Spoken Word at Bar Oussou and Posty Poetry. He has published 2 chapbooks All Other Destinations and The Broken Candle as well as in journals and anthologies here and abroad, and performed in numerous events in Australia, USA, Canada, England, France, Turkey and Singapore. A direct reincarnation of American eccentric Joe Gould (1889-1957), he currently dwells in the St Kilda area and belongs to Roy the Cat.
