From a young age, I loved stories. I remember going to story time at the library, my parents reading to me and watching live theatre. At school I wrote short stories and worked on the school magazine committee.
Primary teaching gave me the opportunity to share my love of reading, writing and storytelling with the younger generation. I was passionate about being a teacher but this was not enough. After several successful years in this profession, I wanted my words and voice to reach a larger audience around the world. Writing books allowed me to do this.
I write contemporary realism. My books are Behind the Mask, Bon Voyage!, Dance Demons, Outback Wonder, Grace’s Mystery Seed and Cato’s Can Can. I was a student at Bryce Courtenay’s and Fiona McIntosh’s Master Classes and I’ve also attended Hazel Edwards, Alison Goodman and Jen Storer courses.
I like to travel and have visited all the continents in the world except Antarctica. This allowed me to see and experience many different cultures. Another passion of mine is dancing. I have learnt many styles, jazz, tap, ballet, contemporary, funk and in the last few years I have been learning Latin American. In 2018, I completed my Gold Star medal in all dance styles, Cha Cha, Jive, Paso Doble, Rumba and Samba.
My favourite flower is the sunflower and I grow this plant every year in my garden.
My personal motto is spread sunshine and inspiration.
