As a child of same-sex parents, Maeve is passionate about the rights of diverse families, and she writes and speaks on the issue often. In 2012, she organised and spoke at a panel for Queer Thinking entitled 'Growing up other: Children of same-sex parents speak'.

Maeve likes gin, dancing, cheese and TV melodramas with good ethics and bad dialogue.
In a market where queer voices are often sanitised, Queerstories is political and pivotal...Queerstories is an invitation for the world to listen to the queer community at its rawest and, above all, it's a safe space for queer readers to come home to. * Books+Publishing * Review * Elle Australia *
