Tanya lives in Melbourne, Australia. When she’s not writing, you might find her wandering through an old home in the country, dreaming up stories with dark secrets, haunted pasts and seeds of hope.
Tanya spent her early years on a farm in Queensland. There she experienced the freedom of roaming the countryside and exploring the hidden nooks inside her creaky old home, letting her imagination grow wild. As she grew up, Tanya moved many times in regional Queensland, experiencing the rich tapestry of life.
Further to completing an Arts History degree and a postgraduate Business Communication diploma, Tanya has had a successful career in communication and change management. Through her work with World Vision she became passionate about helping create better futures for those in need.
Tanya is particularly drawn to writing adult fiction books that bring together the modern day and the past. She enjoys delving into themes exploring love, loss and the strength of women. Her obsessions with nature, history and old homes inevitably find their way into her stories.
Tanya has also written stories that take teenagers on thrilling, magical adventures and help them understand the world around them. She has published a young adult series, and her middle grade novel has been shortlisted for the Affirm Press Mentorship Award.
