So why Nanna Prawn? I’m afraid there are no tall tales or anecdotes of a successful shrimp catching business a’la Forest Gump to tell you; my first name is Dawn and it’s just your basic rhyming nickname that has followed me from school, to work, and from one continent to another. I say why try to escape it when I might as well embrace it?! I often use OzPrawn as a pseudonym for photography comps and on Instagram, and my writing blog began not long after I became a Nanna for the first time. I honestly couldn’t think of anything else to call this blog!
I Graduated from the University of Queensland, in December 2012 with a BA, and Honours in English Literature in 2013. Writing and photography are my passions. Mother of two, Nanna of one, Master of none.
I’m a current Crew Member of the Tispy Lit blog on WordPress…….and yes that really is my bio pic :)
Sometimes I run so I can also eat as much cake as I want, and you can read more about how I ran this far (a 42.2 km marathon) and the infamous ‘controlled shuffle’ here
And…..an early post that explains why, in 2005, aged 36, I emigrated from Hull, East Yorkshire, England to Brisbane, Queensland, Australia……..Because The Beaches Are Better!!
On a beach in the North of England with pebbles as big as my own head, aged about 10 and already trying to dig through to Australia in desperation…… :)
