See Australia and Die describes incidents resulting in harm to people travelling in Australia,  including from crocodile attacks, the sting of  Irukandji jellyfish, and death by hypothermia.

Celebrating 150 years of Rookwood Catholic Cemetery was commissioned by the Catholic church. The book launch was celebrated with a mass at St Mary's Cathedral, followed by a cocktail party at the Hyde Park Barracks, Sydney.

In 2018, Lewis adapted
The Devil's Caress by June Wright to stage. The production presented June Wright's classic murder mystery interwoven with her life and times in post-war Melbourne. It was produced by Factory Space Theatre Company. The script was published by The Australian Script Centre.  
Lewis won a poetry competition in connection with
Refresh Drummoyne, an urban art installation for the City of Canada Bay in Sydney in 2010. Her winning entry was typographed as a mural by a graphic designer in a manner that "refers to and resembles billboards, poster walls, newspaper headlines and antique film rolls."
