Hello World! Welcome to my website.
I’m Kristy-Lee: Mornington Peninsula poet & verse novelist, occasional ninja, everyday, anything writer.
While working on further stories and further studies, I’m eagerly awaiting a second edition of my debut release : It’s Your World. But not only. Consider a little bit of also. Expect 90s flashbacks, possibly the most peculiar game of chess you’ve ever encountered, oceanic escapades, little oddballs, coastal voices &, as always, a good serve of poetry. I find it best served…tepid.
When I’m not swiftly penning or in pursuit of a pencil, I’m available for freelance who’sama’whats (that translates…from a dead language that was used once by a promising but destined for demise civilisation I once found under my six-year-old’s bed after Gathering Night…to writing & other forms of literary-based, uh, stuff). If you feel you would benefit from assistance with your literary who’sama’whats check out my Freelance services for more formal-sounding information.
For some insider insight into my literary missions, mental meanderings, word wars and whimsical whatevers, feel free to connect on…okay wait, I’m changing up my socials in a Covid-friendly fashion. You know, new normal and whatever the next catch-phrase may be. It might be an initiative worth watching out for, currently being fashioned by this guy I know, Norm Newble. Instagram, Facebook or follow my Blog that doesn’t quite exist yet. It may not even be a blog. It might be a newsletter. I’m kinda feeling a Vlogg-y vibe. I’m getting forum feels. I might do all of them. But, I kid you not, I am doing the thing. So, you might need a time machine or some patience while I’m scanning my hat stand.
To cap things off, my recommendation (and, considering I am me, I think you’d agree the source is reliable) is to just sign up to my a newsletter. One day, I’ll pop randomly by and surprise you. Like, huh? Who’s? What is the..?Oh my, really? You think that? You’re saying that? You can understand my hesitation, right? Again, time machines & hats. Plus balls. But I’m doing it, so, sit down and relax while I work on being (fashionably) late to my life.
Upcoming Events is on Hold due to the Pandemic...stay tuned.
While residing with my husband and two daughters on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula, I released my debut verse novel It’s Your World (May, 2017).
So, I am now an author. I am also a wife and mother, a content writer/editor, a property developer and ninja in training and a bunch of other things. I’m even a poet sometimes. You can usually catch me down at the Blue Bay Café on open mic night.
I was educated at Chisholm TAFE and La Trobe University. I loved being a student and miss it terribly. So, I’m pleased to have found the Peninsula Writers Group and Poet’s Corner to help fill the void. Continue reading.

It’s Your World
With my debut novel, It’s Your World, set free into the wild, I’m scribbling up a fenzy to get my next and next and next books on their merry way to availability.
And, as for the so-called adults, I’ve been concocting a gorgeous little collection of poems and idylls as well as a book about a very unusual game of chess (staring Old Pokey the Bishop).
My second YA novel (this one’s a blend of verse and prose) is all about a girl called Polly Esther Rose.It’s a bit deeper and darker with a side order of confusion and chaos.
I’m also excited to be exploring the world of middle grade fiction with a couple of series in the pipes.
My debut release, It’s Your World, can be purchased securely through this site. If you’d like your copy signed, please contact me with the name and age of the recipient.
