Thanks for dropping by.
I’ve been writing since I was a little girl living on a farm in the countryside in Queensland, Australia. My first short story was written when I was about five. It was about our (aptly named) cat called mother who had ten kittens. There wasn’t much of a plot, but don’t you think ten kittens is enough of a story in itself?
My love of writing was channelled into my teen diaries (yikes), later through my undergraduate arts degree and postgraduate communication business degree. Through my twenties, I wrote for businesses by day and poetry at night.
The turning point in my writing occurred when I had my first baby. She was a surprisingly good sleeper and in the little pockets of time I started to write my first middle grade novel – I mean, how hard could be? Right? Wrong!
Before long, my hobby became my passion and then as my baby grew and twins arrived, writing became more important to me.
Fifteen years later, my babies are growing up and I’ve written many books, including children’s and young adult books and women’s fiction.
At their heart my stories are about finding courage, strength and love to overcome adversity. Or they are about cake. Or chocolate.
I hope that you enjoy my books.
