Absent but not idle…

After a long time, I am returning to this website. It has been a busy time for my writing with two books published and a third presently with a publisher.

Leadership in a Synodal Church, co-authored with my colleague Associate Professor Charles Burford, was published early in 2021. Subsequently, Garratt Publishing named it their in-house Book of the Year.

Late in 2020, Australian Catholic Educators 1820-2020, co-edited with Seamus O’Grady, was published. This is the first hard-copy publication for a longer-term project, the Biographical Dictionary of Australian Catholic Educators that I have been working on for some years. It honours the lives of those women and men who have served children and their families in Catholic schools in Australia over 200 years.
