Hi there, I’m Lara Cain Gray (BA Hons, Grad Dip, PhD, NS, GSOH). I’m a Brisbane-based freelance writer, editor and blogger. My professional past includes stints as an academic researcher, librarian and museum curator. These days, I’m seeking that elusive work/life balance by working from home whilst tripping over toys.
I enjoy writing social commentary, book reviews, travel tales and therapeutic ravings about being a parent. As well as this blog, my work has appeared in a range of academic and popular publications including the Queensland Historical Atlas, Mamamia and Brisbane’s Child.
I also write slick web copy for business sites, corporate newletters, brochures and ghost blogs. Visit my PressFolio for examples of what I can do.
Get in touch today if you need charming words.
This Charming Mum is my sharing space. It’s cheaper than therapy. Pull up a couch.
“I find that there are many gifts in this space of quiet pausing between who I was and who I will become.” (From Buddhism for Mothers by Sarah Napthali).
