Hi there!

I'm Naomi, but you can call me Nai (they/she).

I live on the stolen land of the Yugambeh people with my non-binary child Cloud (they/them) and our puppy Fern. I am a writer, researcher and homeschool teacher. On this blog, I write about the things I love - reading, writing, growing and living. In doing so, I often draw upon my background in psychology, coaching and human rights - as well as my experience as an Autistic person. I am so glad you are here and hope you enjoy what you read!

get to know me more!
