From a young age, I have 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 poems and worked on the school magazine committee.
Primary teaching allowed me 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 and my books are Behind the Mask, Bon Voyage!, Dance Demons, Outback Wonder and Grace’s Mystery Seed. I have been fortunate to undertake Bryce Courtenay’s and Fiona McIntosh’s Master Classes. These courses further inspired me to follow my dreams. I also have 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 has allowed me to see and experienced 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.
